Legend has it that the title line from this song was actually spoken by the real Adam to the real Buddy. It was an honor for me to make this line into a song.


You say you'll never leave me,
Expect me to believe,
Even when I know you're loving other men.
But a man breaks his vows,
Like a baby breaks his boughs,
And falls just as far, by the end.

Briefly, I'll cry when you leave, dear.
But you'll see, eventually,
That you're the one in need, here.
My heart my break, but baby,
You're gonna ache for me.

Like medicine, my love makes it better.
But, give up the drug,
And you'll hurt forever.
Whatever you take, Buddy,
You're gonna ache for me.

You'll never recover
From leaving a lover,
If you know his love never strayed.
Don't think for a second it
Won't come to a reckoning,
Time won't be kind to a mind come unmade.

You'll wake in a sweat, by the hour,
Your mouth sickly sweet, and your stomach sour.
You'll shiver and shake,
You're gonna ache for me.
Fate hates a fake, Buddy,
You're gonna ache for me!
