In my mind I've made love to you often but only in my mind can it be so
Cause there's someone at home that's countin' on me
And if I did I'm sure that he would know
Yes he would know yes he could tell
For he has loved me long enough to know me very well
And if I lie he sees it in my eyes I know my guilt would show and he would know
But I must admit you're someone very special and it would be so easy to let go
Making love to you could be so easy but if I did I'm sure that he would know
Yes he would know...
My conscience just won't let me make love to you
I know it would be sweet but I just can't
When I go home to him I must be able to look him in the eyes and say I ain't
Cause he would know...
