Foghat – Tear You Down lyrics

Cold nights in the city can turn a heart to stone,
I'm still cryin' and you know why I'm out here on my own.

Being here without you, it takes up all my time,
I'm tryin' to forget you, but you're still on my mind.

And I don't wanna tear you down, but I'm the only fool around.
You know I'm here on shaky ground, but I don't wanna tear you down.

I'm in a crowd of people, on this uneasy street,
I'm walking blind 'til I can't see what your love done to me.

And I don't wanna tear you down, but I'm the only fool around.
You know I'm here on shaky ground, but I don't wanna tear you down.

I don't wanna tear you down, but I'm the only fool around.
You know I'm here on shaky ground, but I don't wanna tear you down.

{Instrumental}

Just a temporary pleasure, caused a never-ending pain,
But if love could last forever, then we're sure to love again, love again.

And I don't wanna tear you down, but I'm the only fool around.
You know I'm here on shaky ground, but I don't wanna tear you down.

{Instrumental}

I don't wanna tear you down, but I'm the only fool around.
You know I'm here on shaky ground, but I don't wanna tear you down.

I don't wanna tear you down, but I'm the only fool around.
You know I'm here on shaky ground, I don't wanna - I don't wanna tear you down.
