Lyrics

Well talk on the street
Says you might go solo
A good friend of mine
saw you leavin' by your back door

[Chorus]
I need to know, I need to know
If you think you're gotta leave
Then you better say so
I need to know, I need to know
Cause I don't know how long I can hold on
If you're making me wait, if you're leadin' me on
I need to know

Who would've thought that
You'd fall for his line
All of a sudden
It's me on the outside

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

I need to know
I need to know
Baby, I need to know
