Lyrics [verse 1]:
THEY JUST DON'T KNOW
HOW LOST I FEEL WITHOUT YOU,
MY TEARDROPS
NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.
I LAUGH AND JOKE
EACH TIME THEY SPEAK ABOUT YOU
BUT IF THEY HEARD MY HEART
THEY'D HEAR IT SAY:

[Chorus]:
EXCUSE ME,
I THINK I'VE GOT A HEARTACHE,
THERE'S AN ACHING DEEP INSIDE,
AND IT JUST WON'T BE DENIED.
SO EXCUSE ME,
I THINK I'VE GOT A HEARTACHE,
AND I'D BETTER SAY GOODBYE
BEFORE I CRY.

[verse 2]:
I GUESS IT'S PRIDE
THAT MAKES ME HIDE MY SORROW,
I LIVE A LIE
IN ALL I DO AND SAY.
MY LIPS MAY LIE
AND PAINT A BRIGHT TOMORROW
BUT IF I TOLD THE TRUTH
I'D HAVE TO SAY:

[Chorus]:
EXCUSE ME,
I THINK I'VE GOT A HEARTACHE,
THERE'S AN ACHING DEEP INSIDE,
AND IT JUST WON'T BE DENIED.
SO EXCUSE ME,
I THINK I'VE GOT A HEARTACHE,
AND I'D BETTER SAY GOODBYE
BEFORE I CRY.

Lyrics OH JEALOUS ME
AND CARELESS YOU
THE ODDS
WERE JUST TOO GREAT,
I COULDN'T TAKE
THOSE LONELY NIGHTS
YOU MADE ME SIT
AND WAIT.
I THOUGHT
I'D SEEN THE LAST OF YOU
WHEN YOU WALKED OUT
OF SIGHT,
INSTEAD I SEE YOU
IN MY DREAMS
EACH NIGHT.

OH THE KEY'S IN THE MAILBOX
COME ON IN,
I'M SITTING HERE,
WISHING DEAR,
I HAD YOUR LOVE AGAIN.
I'D NEVER EVEN ASK YOU
WHERE YOU'VE BEEN;
THE KEY'S IN THE MAILBOX
COME ON IN.

I SAID I'D RATHER BE ALONE
THAN SHARE YOUR COMPANY,
I SAID DON'T COME AROUND
AT ALL
IF YOU WANT MORE THAN ME.
BUT SITTING HERE ALONE
I CAN'T DENY
THIS FLAME THAT BURNS,
I'D GLADLY TAKE YOU BACK
ON ANY TERMS.

OH THE KEY'S IN THE MAILBOX
COME ON IN,
I'M SITTING HERE,
WISHING DEAR,
I HAD YOUR LOVE AGAIN.
I'D NEVER EVEN ASK YOU
WHERE YOU'VE BEEN;
THE KEY'S IN THE MAILBOX
COME ON IN.
