Tell me, since I’m curious: when will you decide
Whether you intend to do me wrong or treat me right?
I really don’t mind either way, I’d simply like to know
Whether I should stand and stay or call it off and go

Life’s full of problems, but I won’t be one of them
I can go as easy as I came
It’s just the entropy sapping my energy
Darling, I’m wise to your little game

Just because I’m nice
Doesn’t mean I’m blind
Are you gonna do it?
Are you gonna break my heart?

I could wait and see
But the waiting’s killing me
Hurry up and do it
Hurry up and break my heart

I won’t be happy ‘til I’m back on old familiar ground
The boulevard of broken hearts is where I can be found
I’m content to play the part of any woman scorned
Nothing comes so naturally as fractious and forlorn

Life’s full of problems and I could be one of them
If you need a reason to be free
I may be proud but you know I’m not precious
Need a reason? Let it just be me

Just because I’m nice, nice, nice
Doesn’t mean I’m kind, kind, kind
I could make you do it
I could make you break my heart

I could wait and see, see, see
But the waiting’s killing me
Hurry up and do it
Hurry up and break my heart

So I can leave
Oh, I’ll be free

Just because I’m nice
Doesn’t mean I’m kind
Are you gonna do it?
