tell me to my face lyrics – dan fogelberg

and though you try to justify the meaning
of the note you sent this evening
to my door you’re not deceiving me

well, i’d have thought that you’d have known much better
sending ’round an unsigned letter
facing me would be much better now

is it just that you can’t face the future with me
can’t you tell me to my face?
you just took the coward’s way to say goodbye
how would you feel here in my place?

and now i know my love is lost on you
and nothing you can say or do
will turn my head around the other way

i’d have thought you’d have the decency
to come and tell the truth to me
instead of telling lies your eyes betray

is it just that you can’t face the future with me
can’t you tell me to my face?
you just took the coward’s way to say goodbye
how would you feel here in my place?

tell me to my face you’re leaving now
tell me to my face that you’re leaving now

and though you try to justify the meaning
of the note you sent this evening
to my door you’re not deceiving me

well, i’d have thought that you’d have known much better
sending ’round an unsigned letter
facing me would be much better now

is it just that you can’t face the future with me
can’t you tell me to my face?
you just took the coward’s way to say goodbye
how would you feel here in my place?

tell me to my face you’re leaving now
tell me to my face that you’re leaving now
