When I walked you to the door I was feeling mighty fine
I was thinking hey Ive got love to ease my mind
Then I got to the car and I was staring at your scars
Thinking hey, this aint no way to spend my time

Now I want a true love affair
Not this touch-and-go in the air
You know I dont know if Im coming or Im down
I dont want a love touch and go
I want a feeling I only know
Or else you can get me out of this town

When I saw you smile I knew one look into your eyes
And I was thinking hey, are you in love again
Then I heard you laugh honey you were laughing at the past
I was thinking this aint no way to treat a friend

You were laughing at the past
Honey you were smiling through your glass
Watching cars drive away in your mind
You were hoping I would leave
Honey I was dreaming I could stay
And this aint no way to spend my time
This aint no way to treat a friend
This aint no way to see me
Im looking for the end
This aint no way to treat a friend

Now I want words I want touch
Maybe thats a bit too much
For one so far removed
From what you used to claim
Well if you be cruel, Ill still be kind
You know Ive got it in my mind
Im in love with you
I aint gonna play your games
If you want my advice
Dont say its wrong if it feels right
Dont push me down just to see me crawl
Ill be crawling on the floor
Then Ill be reaching for the door
Ill be crawling right out of your eyes
Honey Ill be walking right out of your eyes
Honey Ill be walking right out of your eyes
