How come you love him when he takes you for a fool,
he's only looking for a good time.
How can he love you when he treats you mean cruel,
he's not the best thing that you could find.

Is it true? I can't believe it.
Is it true? I just can't see it.
Is it true? Is that you?

When we were young we didn't really have a care,
you were hung up, I had a good line.
I never knew it then but, man, I was in love.
How could I know it was the right time?

Is it true you've lost that feelin ?
Is it true you might be leavin ?
Is it true? Don't wanna find out.

Yes, I was so wrong for leading you on,
there wasn't much I could do.
I was a wild one but I can change some
if that's important to you.

Is it true you've lost that feelin ?
Is it true you might be leavin ?
Is it true, is it true?

She's really leavin',
she's really leavin',
she's really leavin'.

- Randy Meisner
