1. ' told me baby,
You were just too tired to try,
There was nothing left for you to give
And no more tears to cry.
I know she hurt you,
But you know I've been hurt too.
You just come to me, we'll see
What a love can do.
2. ' told me baby,
I was still too young to know,
All the ways that love was going to drag you down,
And just how low I'd go.
In love and time between us,
Makes no difference at all.
You know, You're as desperate to get back up,
As I am not to fall.
Oh, baby, I've been looking for a man like you. . .
After all we've been through
There's no one left to fool;
Nothing left for us to do,
Except me and you.
3. ' told me baby,
To find somebody new.
Do you really think that I'd come this far,
Just to lose a man like you?
You know you've got to take a chance,
If only you will stay.
And if you've got the time baby, I've got the love,
We might just find a way (4x).
