I know
The reason you've been crying, oh, yes
And I heard
He won't be meeting you

How does it feel
Being the one left behind
What's the matter, baby?
Is it hurting you?

I know (I know) you found out he's been cheating (I know), oh, yeah
And I heard he even told you that he was untrue

How does it feel (Being on the outside)
Being on the outside looking in
What's the matter, baby?
Is it hurting you?

(Remember)
Remember when I needed you so bad
(Remember)
Remember what you had to say
You told me that I should find another shoulder to cry on
Then you laughed (you laughed)
You laughed and ya walked away

I know (I know) that you been asking 'bout me (I know), oh, yeah, (I know)
But I'm sorry
But I've found somebody new
And my hurting is just about over, oh, yeah
But, baby
It's just starting for you

Oh, what's the matter, baby?
Is it hurting you, girl?
Oh, what's the matter, baby?
Is it hurting you?
(What's the matter, what's the matter, what's the matter, baby)
Remember when you hurt me, girl
A-what's the matter, what's the matter, baby?
(What's the matter, what's the matter, what's the matter, baby)
Is he hurting you?
Is he hurting you, girl?
(What's the matter, what's the matter, what's the matter, baby)
A-what's the matter, what's the matter, baby?
