Lyrics:

What do I have to do to make you love me?
What do I have to do to make you care?
What do I do when lightning strikes me?
And I awake to find that you’re not there?

What do I do to make you want me?
What do I have to do to be heard?
What do I say when it’s all over?
Sorry seems to be the hardest word

It’s sad, so sad
It’s a sad, sad situation
And it’s getting more and more absurd
It’s sad, so sad
Why can’t we talking over?
Always seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word

It’s sad, so sad
It’s a sad, sad situation
And it’s getting more and more absurd
It’s sad, so sad
Why can’t we talking over?
Always seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word

What do I have to do to make you love me?
What do I have to do to be heard?
What do I do when lightning strikes me?
What do I have to do?
What do I have to do?
Sorry seems to be the hardest word
