Kim Carnes/Dave Ellingson)
You can ride in the front
Ride in the back
Or someplace in between
You can say what you mean
But not mean what you say
And wonder if it's all the same
Funny how when your life turns green
And he's right there with you
Then it all turns around
When it all comes down
Is somebody lying to you
She won't be begging for favors
Even with a broken heart
Begging for favors
Even if she's falling apart
Begging for favors
Begging for favors
Is she out of her head
Out of emotion
Cause he's not out of her mind
Headphones blaring solitary radio
She's high on the wire
Down with desire
But she's not out of design
She's just learning how things work
Learning how things work
Learning how things work
She won't be begging for favors
Even with a broken heart
Begging for favors
Even if she's falling apart
She won't be begging for favors
She won't be hanging around
Begging for favors
She won't be begging for favors
You can ride in the front
Ride in the back
Or someplace in between
You can say what you mean
But not mean what you say
And wonder if it's all the same
She won't be begging for favors
Even with a broken heart
Begging for favors
Even if she's falling apart
She won't be begging for favors
Even if she's hanging around
She won't be begging for favors
She won't be begging for favors
She won't be begging for favors
