I bumped into a good ol’ friend of mine
She asked me, “Whatcha’ been doing with your time?”
She said, “Something about you isn’t quite the same
Can you tell me, tell me what is to blame?”
And I said:

I’m on a heartache diet
I can’t deny it
No way to hide it
If you wanna try it
Start with a plate of loneliness
A bowl of misery
You’ll lose seven pounds in tears

It all began back in the early spring
When I noticed he stopped wearing his ring
I wished he would tell me where he was bound
But he turned away and left without a sound

He put me on a
Heartache diet
I can’t deny it
No way to hide it
If you wanna try it
Take a bite of bitterness
A jar of jealousy
You’ll lose seven pounds in tears

I bumped into that same old friend again
She was looking real pale, kinda’ thin
I said, “Something about you isn’t quite the same
Can you tell me, tell me what is to blame?”
And she said:

I’m on a heartache diet
I can’t deny it
No way to hide it
I know that you’ve tried it
Start with a plate of loneliness
A bowl of misery
I lost seven pounds in tears

A glass of emptiness
A slice of sorrow
I lost seven pounds in tears
