Imelda:
Why don’t you love me?

Estrella:
Why don’t you love me?

Imelda & Estrella:
Why don’t you love me?

Imelda:
I gave you my life
I gave you my time
What more could I do?
I’m broken inside

Estrella:
I rose each morning
Worked way past midnight
Exhausted, expired
Now you kick me out?

Imelda & Estrella:
Why don’t you love me?
What’s a woman to do?
Why don’t you love me? (do I)
Mean so little to you?

Estrella:
It’s been—so long—our lives—

Imelda:
What’s wrong—what’s right?

Imelda & Estrella:
I did ev’rything…
Estrella:
Ev’rything was for you

Imelda & Estrella:
Why don’t you love me?

Estrella:
My legs won’t hold me
My chest feels so strange
Why don’t you love me
Was it something that I said?

Imelda:
How can you say this?
And when did you change?
You used to love me
Was it just pretend?

Imelda & Estrella:
Why don’t you love me?

Imelda:
Just look at Nixon
They tore him apart
How could you be so hard?
I gave you my heart

Estrella:
Does it add up to nothing
The years that we’ve been through

Imelda:
And how can you say this to me

Imelda & Estrella:
When I did ev’rything—

Imelda:
Ev’rything was for you

Imelda & Estrella:
Why don’t you love me?
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
