(Kim Carnes/Donna Weiss)

What good is love if you're not wearing it baby
When you're dying of thirst and drowing in maybe's
When nobody else can touch that part of you
Me I stood out here in the open
And offered the one thing that nobody else had broken
As if I didn't know what you might do
I might lose

I have broken every rule the hard way for you
And I would do it all again
Just to spend the night with you

You took my love like a one armed bandit
Got reason to cry
Got more than I can stand and
I'm going down for the third time over you
It hurts the most when the knife keeps coming
I was standin' still when I should have been running
As if you didn't know what I might do
I might choose

I have broken every rule the hard way for you
And I would do it all again
Just to spend the night with you
I would follow every road with nothing else in view
Just like the frozen willow bends I have
Just to spend the night with you

Do you love to watch me break
Do you just love to watch me ache
On the chances that I take
Do you love to watch me break in two
Honey just to spend the night with you
