Take your time and tell me
Where you lie
I realize
That we've been found out this time

We should stay together
If we can
But what you've planned
Means there's a difference between

[Chorus]
What you're gonna say
In private
You still want my love
We're in this together
And what you're gonna do
In public
Say you were never in love
That you can remember

So discreet
I never tried to meet
Your friends or interfere
I took a back seat between

[Chorus]

What you gonna say, eh
When you run back to your wife?
I guess it's just the story of my life
What you gonna say?

So take your time
And tell me
Where did you learn
Oh, I may publicize
That there's a difference between

[Chorus]

Tell me what you gonna say
In private?, oh, oh, oh
What you gonna say?
What you gonna do?
Baby, what you gonna say?
