Baby, I got the best intentions,
But I just can't do it
Baby, I got the truest aim,
But I just can't win

Baby, I got a good vibration,
But I just can't play it
Baby, I spent my only fortune,
On the wages of sin

So you, you gotta be extra forgiving,
And you gotta be super strong,
You gotta be a true romantic

I want you to look the other way,
When everything goes wrong

Baby, you took all the good stuff,
And put it all together
And you took all the bad stuff,
And you threw it all away

Would I still be the girl
Who suits your fancy
Would I still be the boy
Who rocks your world

If you get lonely,
For the trouble and the chaos,
If you get bored
Since you walked away,
Remember what I told you
When the night was darkest,
You can leave me all you need to
Baby, I'm here to stay

And baby, I'm gonna be extra forgiving,
And I'm gonna be super strong
'Cause baby, I'm, I'm a true romantic
I'm gonna look the other way,
When everything goes wrong
