I've lived a dozen lifetimes in twenty-some-odd years
Got no use for trouble, got no use for tears
Can't you see it's killing me, I'm old before my time
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

Chorus:
I've had my share of sorrow, more than you could know
Save your lies and alibis, I've heard that tune before
Can't you see it's killing me, I'm old before my time
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

You're out all night, asleep all day, so pack it up and leave
I've got no use for trouble, trouble's using me
Don't you see my love won't be forever deaf and blind
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

Chorus

Chorus

Can't you see that love can't be forever deaf and blind?
