The sun is shinin'
But you don't you know it's rainin' in my heart
I feel the walls closing in
At just the thought of you leavin'
It's gone too far
Now I find myself on the outside just lookin' in
Before you leave me alone tonight
Baby, baby, read me my rights

I'm just a prisoner
Caught up in a world I can't control
What am I doin' here
Just drownin' in these tears
How can you walk away
And watch it all just crumble
After all these years
Before you do me wrong tonight
Baby, baby, read me my rights

Don't I have the right to love you
Don't I have the right to want you
Do I have to let you go
Tell me why you want to leave me
Baby, don't you need me
Don't I have the right to know

Do you still love me
Or am I just wastin' my time
Just losin' my mind
Before you break my heart tonight
Baby, baby, read me my rights

Don't I have the right to love you
Don't I have the right to want you
Do I have to let you go
Tell me why you want to leave me
Baby, don't you need me
Don't I have the right to know

Do you still love me
Or am I just wastin' my time
Just losin' my mind
Before you break my heart tonight
Baby, baby, read me my rights
Before you do me wrong tonight
Baby, baby, read me my rights
