Why do you build me up -build me up- Buttercup, baby 
        F                             G
Just to let me down -let me down- and mess me around

And then worst of all -worst of all- you never call, baby

When you say you will -say you will- but I love you still 
       C                          C7
I need you -I need you- more than anyone, darlin'

Don't break my heart

"I'll be over at ten," you told me time and again

But you're late, I wait around and then 
  C           G             Bb       F
I went to the door, I can't take any more 
         C               F
It's not you, you let me down again
