You're breakin' my heart
Stealin' my thunder
How much more can I take
You're draggin' me down
Holdin' me under
How much more can I take

How much more can I take
Won't somebody break
News to you gently
I sing, you fill my eyes
But you don't fill the hunger
How much more can I take

Well, now I see your face
Everywhere, everyplace
How much more can I take
You're there in my night
You're there in my morning sunlight
How much more can I take

How much more can I take
I wish that I could make
Your mind up for you
I sing, you fill my eyes
But you don't fill the hunger
How much more can I

How much more can I take
Won't somebody help me
I'm naked as the day I was born
These clothes have a way
Of changin' what I'm feelin'
I try and I try but I can't get 'em on

I sit here alone
Wait by the telephone line
How much more can I take
Well, I'm jealous as hell
Mixed up 'n' mean as well
How much more can I take

How much more can I take
I know she'd like to break
Those stones over my body
I sing, you fill my eyes
But you don't fill the hunger
How much more can I take

I say, you fill my eyes
But you don't fill the hunger
How much more can I take
