Bobby Womack – When Love Begins Friendship Ends lyrics

If I told you, told you, told you
You were wrong
You get mad and say leave me alone

So I waited, waited, waited
To let you see
The women you love, is in love with me

And she's so tired of being left alone
I know we're friends
But sometimes when love begins
That's when friendship ends
That's when friendship ends

I never, never, never
Thought it would be this way
You left her alone both night and day

When you were gone
Long gone such a long time
I was always there to keep her from crying

She was so tired of being left alone
I know we're friends
But sometimes when love begins
That's when friendship ends

So why don't you
Just shake my hand and walk away like a man

Help me somebody, help me somebody

Now the girl, the girl, the girl
Means a world to me
Gonna make score
She gets what she need

But she ask me for love
I couldn't turn around
When she needed your love
You were never around

She was so tired of being left alone
I know we're friends
But sometimes when love begins
That's when friendship ends
I say, “That's when friendship ends”

Help me somebody, somebody
Oh, somebody, somebody, somewhere
Somebody, somewhere

It's too late
Is it too late?
Oh love, oh love
Love, oh love, love

Love will turn you against your own mother
And sometimes, sometimes
It can turn you all the way around

Turn you against your sister
Turn you against your sister or brother
Yes it can now

So my friend, my friend
This is it, that's got to end
As I think, as I think
I've got a love that's 'bout to begin

I couldn't be this way now no, no, no
Took me by surprise

I can't help myself
No, I can't help myself no, no
Long time, long time, long time
