Tegan And Sara - How Come You Don't Want Me Lyrics




I can't say that I'm sorry
For getting so ahead of myself
I can't say that I'm sorry
For loving you and hating myself

I had nothing to show you
I had nothing to hold you down
It's killing me to walk away

How come you don't want me now?
Why don't you want to wait this out?
How come you always lead me on,
Never take my call, hear me out?
Why don't you want to win me now?
Why don't you want to show me off?
Tell me why you couldn't try,
Couldn't try and keep me here

I see you by my house
Walking with a different girl
I see you by my house
Talking with a different girl

She's got nothing to show you
She's got nothing to hold you down
You're killing me to walk away

How come you don't want me now?
Why don't you want to wait this out?
How come you always lead me on,
Never take my call, hear me out?
Why don't you want to win me now?
Why don't you want to show me off?
Tell me why you're gonna try
Gonna try and leave me here?

One day soon
I won't be the one who waits for you
Someday soon
I won't be the one who waits for you

How come you don't want me now?

How come you always lead me on,
Never take my call, hear me out?

Why don't you want to win me now?

Tell me why you couldn't try,
Couldn't try and keep me here

How come you don't want me now?
Why don't you want to wait this out?
How come you always lead me on
Never take my call, hear me out?
Why don't you want to win me now?
Why don't you want to show me off?
Tell me why you couldn't try,
Couldn't try and keep me here

How come you don't want me now?
Why don't you want to wait this out?
How come you always lead me on
Never take my call, hear me out?
Why don't you want to win me now?
Why don't you want to show me off?
Tell me why you couldn't try,
Couldn't try and keep me here

  30. Mak Morrisey

    wait what is the duff?

    KillYourHero92

    Ma Ken The Duff is a highschool movie, also stands for designated ugly fat friend. It's not in the greatness of a John Hughes film or something newer like Mean Girls or Easy-A but it is a pretty good movie and it features this song.

  31. Neo Chance

    I just finished watching The Duff. New favorite added to my favorite list. Fav quote from the movie "What the shit" haha. I think I'm going to watch it again, it's a Saturday I ain't got anything planned so yeah. Best 3 hours and 20 minutes spent on a Saturday in a looong time.

    Went to a Tegan and Sara concert, the other day, and I swear those two minutes were one of the best of my life.

  36. Mark R

    This song hurts my heart, but kinda in a good way. Then again, Tegan and Sara are pretty damn good, too.

  37. M A

    I can't say that I'm sorry
    For getting so ahead of myself
    I can't say that I'm sorry
    For loving you and hating myself

    I see you by my house
    Walking with a different girl
    I see you by my house
    Talking with a different girl

    She's got nothing to show you
    She's got nothing to hold you down
    You're killing me to walk away

    How come you don't want me now?

    Why don't you want to show me off?
    Tell me why you're gonna try
    Gonna try and leave me here?

    One day soon
    I won't be the one who waits for you

    I won't be the one who waits for you

    Never take my call, hear me out?
    Why don't you want to win me now?
    Why don't you want to show me off?
    Tell me why you couldn't try,
    Couldn't try and keep me here

    How come you don't want me now?

    Shana

    If you are talking about Troye Sivan, then no, even though I am a huge fan of him. I kind of wish I did though

  40. datinyone

    fantastic tune.. the more you listen to it, the better it becomes.. maybe i just love Sara's range.. she's got a great voice!

    Pink Tink

    don't say "tune" to try and sound unique and different

    Itzel Herondale

    datinyone

  41. Mr. Marcelli

    Kinda NewRetroWave

  42. happy smiley cat

    i love this song!!!!

  43. Chanelle P E S Ramos

    I have all albums since Under Feet Like Ours, but this song will always be my favourite. It's so painfully true for myself. :'(

  44. Giannina Briceno

    Love it 💕

  45. Words More words

    How do you go from The Con to Sainthood to.....well......this?

    Luis Szczurek

    Although this track in particular is one of the most indie-sounding from all the record.

  46. Dat1girl

    it's killing me to walk away

  47. mylla

    1:24 that's what gets the people goin!

  48. Pricefield Love

    Am I the only one who liked this song years before the duff even came out

  49. Jaded Mermaid

    Literally my last relationship in song form.

    xavxavxavhenri

    +Alexandria nice

    Jordon Weido

    Sad but hilarious

  50. Jorose Alfonso

    I really did look for the soundtrack ;)

  51. Lyn Kinyua

    The DUFF made me look for this song. I love the beginning of it. The DUFF is an amazing movie.

  52. DirtyBeard Chandler

    Incredible song. Sounds like the girl vetsion of DEADSY.

    TheMikeyX

    +DirtyBeard Chandler Deadsy, if we're talking about the same band, seemed to have a much darker synth sound than do Tegan and Sara, but it's an interesting comparison.

  53. leah wells

    Great album! Love t&s 💗

  54. Nadia D

    This song is totally amazing and got it on replay after watching The Duff it totally have the right words. Love it!!!

  55. Imty Akum

    Guilty! ya, the Duff. How come i didn't know How Come You Don't Want Me before the movie?

  56. Jodian Porter

    awesome song !! <3
    #THEDUFF  brought me here :)

    happy smiley cat

    +Jodian Porter same

    Kenzie Dale

    same :)

  57. Lizz Garcia

    We don't care how you found the song, just love the music and Tegans voice.♡

    Dena Marie

    +Lizz Garcia  You are soooo right however, I am pretty sure it's mostly Sara singing. :)

    Lizz Garcia

    +Dena Marie its mostly tegan when they are live.

    くまつ

    +Lizz Garcia This song is actually Sara's song so Sara sings most of it. Tegan only sings the background part of it. :)

    Lizz Garcia

    +Max Fernandes I saw them last November and tegan sang it with sara in the background

    Pink Tink

    thumbs up to you!!!! Thank you!!!

  58. Peter George

    great pop song

  59. Ксения Ермолаева

    So simple and so right words! love it. Somewhere Ive read that girls are always miss their ex and boys always doesn't

    Jaap Zeldenrust

    As a general rule, any claim that "all girls/women do one thing and all boys/men do another" is false.

  60. NiqueDoesItBest

    Brace yourselves for the people who found the song because of The Duff lol.

    Moon

    NiqueDoesItBest The girl from the Duff was in their video for I Was A Fool

    Adelayda Martinez

    NiqueDoesItBest same 😂😂😂

    Gracie Alejandra

    OMG ME TOO

    Pink Tink

    it's annoying

  61. Aubrianna Decker

    Damn I'm addicted to this song.

  62. steph d

    nice one!

  63. eden estes

    My favorite to dance in my car to. 

  64. californialinchen

    When this song came out last year, it was the time when I felt like:
    Oh God, I am so gay, there's no way back.
    So.. good memories - great song! :)

  65. Matt Joanisse

    love the album but this song always reminds me of "Friday - Rebecca Black" o_O

  66. Camille

    i love this but the acoustic is better in my opinion

    Ethan John

    meh. i think the song benefits from the synthy qualities but it is a ballad so sure

  67. Reza Rasyid

    I like This Song

  68. funtimehappytime

    The only problem with this song is that it's too short. Gimme one more verse and a couple more addictive choruses!! Then my heart will be broken good and proper!

  69. Mady Kittles

    I love this song so much I keep playing it

  70. Arron Blake

    Love em!

  71. Jessica Anselmo

    It's killing me to walk away

    Vance Alavado

    I had nothing to show you.. I had nothing to hold you down.. It's killing me to walk away.. *favorite lines in this song*

  72. Social 357

    Is this song mixed/mastered like crap? Love the hook and melody but it sounds all muddy and bogus for a commercial recording. Like when the kick comes in at .28. Sounds all weird, I bought the MP3 and it does the same thing.

  73. katycatmlo6

    I wish the beginning part wasn't so auto-tuned. I want a recorded acoustic version!

  74. Tony Patryn

    This song has been on loop on my iPhone for the past hour

  75. Toronto Rapper JSTONE

    Masterfully written...

  76. Lara Hans

    my ex sent me here... she is beautiful.. :(

  77. John Brown

    ...there isn't a clarinet... just synthesizers...

    Luis Szczurek

    The instrument from 0:07 to 0:10.

  78. 18LizzyBoo

    3 years just to the trash? how come you don't want me now? why do call her your gf? why do you lead me on...?

  79. TasuLife

    that clarinet in the opening sounds like crap. this song has a great hook though, i like it alot

  80. Mathieu Lynos

    Like O Like H in the gut!

  81. Dizzydame Dalton

    song is too short.. cant get enough of it

  82. Jordan Gonzalez

    This is such a sad song :'(

  83. Irene

    love it!! very talented tegan and sara!!!

  84. Tony Lugosi

    same here...

  85. Derrick Bouchard

    Very impressive work, T & S. Nice to see that there are still artists out there that can put their emotions into a song still. Keep up the good work.

  86. Carly Stagg

    good call...........same...frig em lol

  87. Carly Stagg

    Seeing them in july as well....myself and my daughter have meet and greet tickets....can't wait!!

  88. Andrew Kevin Newton aka Δ

    you can't get better x

  89. kkgirl543

    hmm I think this is my favourite song from the album

  90. elle emm

    sometimes i miss my ex.. this song helps me remember i hate him.

  91. IAMME000

    Don't get me wrong, I love this song, but I keep hearing "why don't you wanna rim me now?".

  92. KillYourHero92

    Sure :)

  93. Legacy0fLayC00l

    Would u like an inbox buddy? :D

  94. KillYourHero92

    I have a hard copy of the album and the lyric book says he's a co-writer. I hadn't checked previously... I'm sure the concert will be awesome! I'm still waiting for my chance to see them. Hopefully that will be this September :)

  95. Legacy0fLayC00l

    I looked it up and it says Jack has credit for it but it doesn't say why! I'm seeing them all in concert in July! and I'm willing to share video tape! :D

  96. KillYourHero92

    I believe Jack Antonoff co-wrote the song with Sara and Tegan.

  97. Legacy0fLayC00l

    Jack Antonoff plays in this?
