Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation – Downhearted lyrics

I've been downhearted
Too many times before
I've been downhearted, woman
Too many times before

If you can't bring me
Some loving right now
Please quit hanging around my door

Those things you've been saying
You know to your soul, just ain't true
Those lying and cheating things
You've been saying, woman
Oh you know deep down in your soul

Those things just ain't true

You turn your back on me, baby
Now I can bring my love to you
I can bring my love to you

I'm sitting here crying
Waiting for my heart to mend
I'm sitting here crying, woman
Waiting for my poor heart to mend

If I can't take you as a lover
Why should I treat you like a friend
