Darlingyou Know I Wouldn't Lie - Elvis Costello

Here I am late again for the last time
And like I promisedI just told her goodbye
Please believe me 'cause this timeit's really over
And darlingyou know I wouldn't lie

Didn't I come and tell you about her
How temptation lured she and I
Now I know it was only fascination
And darlingyou know I wouldn't lie

I had to let her down easy as slow as I could
After allshe's got feelings too
But it took a little longer than I thought it would
But this timeshe knows we're really through

She wanted to hold me forever
And this lipstick shows her final try
And these tears on my shoulder are proof that she failed
And darlingyou know I wouldn't lie
