(kirsty maccoll/marshall crenshaw)

I'm nearly sober
And I can see the truth
I'm not immune to the sorrow that you put me through
All I ever wanted
Was a little more respect from you

I used to love you
But now I feel abused
I was a fool to be blind to the things you do
All I ever wanted
Was a little more respect from you

I'll never understand
The habits of a man out on the town
And where he hangs around

Now you think it over
Decide what to do
I couldn't fall for your story if I wanted to
All I ever wanted
Was a little more respect from you

I tried to make you see
That you were losing me but every day
You still went out to play

And now I'll say for the last time
You had the chance
And I won't dance for you baby like you want me to
All I ever wanted
Was a little more respect from you

All I ever wanted was a little more respect
