Oh, the last time that I saw you
You know you didn't say a word.
And I knew, honey as I looked into your eyes
That my feelings, lord, they'd never been heard.
Well, I'm talkin' to you about love,
Did you hear me? I said love.
Yeah, because it's got to be such a long, long, long way
From denyin', from denyin'.

And I say you don't say no, no, no, to me no more.
And I believed in you all the time,
Honey, until I found out you know that I was so wrong.
I wanted to try and build a life with you,
I guess I should've known it, I guess I should've known it all along.
Let me hold you just once
Honey I'll ask you just once more
Because it's got to be such a long, long way from cryin'
And I been cryin'
And I got tears in my eyes,
Yeah, but don't you know when you love somebody, have some pressures
There can never, never, never be any secret,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

You gonna have to pay your dues
And sometimes, honey, sometimes you're bound to lose.
Yeah, but that's the way
You're gonna learn, learn, learn to love people, yeah.

Oh god, I wish I could explain it myself,
'cause I know that it's my fault, dear.
It's so easy to hurt you, darling,
It's so hard, I guess it's hard not to do.
And I know you showed me a new life
And you'll always, yeah you'll always be my friend.
Baby I don't think that I can keep from cryin'
And I'll be tryin' and I been cryin' for you, babe,
Yes I have now.

Well, tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
What would I do without you child?
I'm afraid I can't say
But I hope honey that when you remember,
Lord, it'll be, it'll be such a sunny day
Now, now, now, now, good-bye,
And I'll see you sometime
And don't be worried, everything's just fine
Baby I don't think
That I can keep from dyin'
And I've been dyin'.

I said now every day I got a little bit, babe,
I said now every day I lose me someone in my heart
I've been lonely, lonely, look around baby
I said I've been lonely, lonely, I've been searchin' for you,
And I got to find, honey have to find my baby
I gotta find, I gotta want it, gotta need it,
'cause hear me baby, baby, talk about my baby
Hear me baby, baby, whoa yeah, my baby,
Hear me baby, baby, talk about my baby
Won't you help me now,
Won't you help me now,
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta
Whoa yeah, I gotta
I gotta leave you, baby, I can't help myself
I gotta leave you, baby, I got to, you know
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta
Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta
Whoa yeah, I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta

Whoaa... Lord, lord lord lord!!
