VERSE
IT'S RAINING, YOU'RE SOAKED TO THE BONE, SHE DID YOU WRONG,
NOW YOU'RE AT MY DOOR AGAIN.
COME ON IN, IN FROM THE STORM, MY FIRE IS WARM,
WE CAN TALK ALL NIGHT MY FRIEND.

CHORUS
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME A THING IF IT HURTS TOO MUCH.
I'VE BEEN HURT TOO, I FEEL FOR YOU,
BUT SUGAR, DON'T GIVE UP ON LOVE.
ARE YOU STRONG? CAN YOU HANG ON,
WHEN IT HURTS TOO MUCH?

VERSE
I HATE THIS, I LOOK IN YOUR EYES AND I SEE ALL HER LIES,
ARE TEARING UP YOUR HEART.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, LET IT OUT SLOW, BABY LET GO,
OH, I'M HERE IF YOU FALL APART.

CHORUS
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO TELL ME A THING IF IT HURTS TOO MUCH.
I'VE BEEN HURT TOO, I FEEL FOR YOU,
BUT SUGAR, DON'T GIVE UP ON LOVE.
ARE YOU STRONG? CAN YOU HANG ON,
WHEN IT HURTS TOO MUCH?

BRIDGE
HANG ON, YOU NEED TO HEAR WHAT I SAY.
HANG ON, I'M GONNA SOUND CRAZY,
BUT EVERY TIME YOU COME AROUND,
I JUST WANNA SCREAM OUT LOUD,
HOLD ME, KISS ME, SEE ME AS MORE THAN JUST A FRIEND.

CHORUS
I DIDN'T WANT TO TELL YOU A THING, IT HURTS TOO MUCH.
IT'S TIME YOU KNEW, I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU,
HOLDING BACK HAS ALWAYS BEEN ROUGH.
NOW THAT YOU KNOW, PLEASE DON'T GO,
CAUSE IT HURTS TOO MUCH.
LOVE AINT' FAIR, WE'VE BOTH BEEN THERE,
AND IT HURTS TOO MUCH.
