Written By David Allan Coe

IF I GIVE MY LOVE TO YOU GIRL, WILL I GET LOVE IN RETURN
OR WILL I JUST GET A FIRE, FOR AS LONG AS IT WILL BURN?
I'M NOT LOOKING FOR A LOVER, I DON'T EVEN WANT A FRIEND
I WANT THIS TO LAST FOREVER, AND FOREVER NEVER ENDS.

DON'T TELL ME LIES OR HYPNOTIZE ME WITH YOUR EYES
WHILE SAYING THAT YOU NEED ME
IF THIS IS JUST A ONE NIGHT STAND
I'D RATHER TURN AROUND AND WALK AWAY.

DON'T HOLD ME IN YOUR ARMS AND RUN YOUR FINGERS THROUGH MY HAIR
IF YOU DON'T LOVE ME
IF THIS IS JUST A GAME, WELL, HONEY
I DON'T THINK I REALLY CARE TO PLAY.

I'VE TRUSTED YOU BEFORE, BABE (TRUSTED YOU) AND YOU ALWAYS LET ME DOWN
I CAME BACK TO YOU BELIEVING I WAS MORE THAN JUST YOUR CLOWN
YOU SAY IT WILL BE DIFFERENT (THIS TIME) THIS TIME YOUR LOVE IS REAL
HONEY, DON'T MAKE ME BELIEVE YOU, IF THAT AIN'T THE WAY YOU FEEL.
