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.
