David Byrne Lyrics

Why Don't You Love Me? Lyrics
[Vocals by Cyndi Lauper & Tori Amos ]

[Imelda:]
Why don't you love me?

[Estrella:]
Why don't you love me?

[Imelda & Estrella:]
Why don't you love me?

[Imelda:]
I gave you my life
I gave you my time
What more could I do?
I'm broken inside

[Estrella:]
I rose each morning
Worked way past midnight
Exhausted, expired
Now you kick me out?

[Imelda & Estrella:]
Why don't you love me?
What's a woman to do?
Why don't you love me? (do I)
Mean so little to you?

[Estrella:]
It's been-so long-our lives-
[Imelda:]
What's wrong-what's right?
[Imelda & Estrella:]
I did ev'rything...
[Estrella:]
Ev'rything was for you

[Imelda & Estrella:]
Why don't you love me?

[Estrella:]
My legs won't hold me
My chest feels so strange
Why don't you love me
Was it something that I said?

[Imelda:]
How can you say this?
And when did you change?
You used to love me
Was it just pretend?

[Imelda & Estrella:]
Why don't you love me?

[Imelda:]
Just look at Nixon
They tore him apart
How could you be so hard?
I gave you my heart

[Estrella:]
Does it add up to nothing
The years that we've been through

[Imelda:]
And how can you say this to me
[Imelda & Estrella:]
When I did ev'rything-
[Imelda:]
Ev'rything was for you

[Imelda & Estrella:]
Why don't you love me?
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
