Writers: Alan Tarney & Leo Sayer

Please, tell me what's on your mind
I can see the tears but I don't know why
You're crying
It it me or is it you
Is it real or just a mood
Well I know you're sad but what are you
Tryin' to prove
When you say that you can't go on
And you feel like you don't belong
You've got nobody to lean upon
It seems we've come so far but we just can't
Get along

Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong

I've been workin' -- never coming home at all
I left you chained to the kitchen busy walkin'
Up the wall
Now I don't want nobody else
And I'm not thinking about myself
When I say that I'll do anything to stop you
Saying that you don't belong
And what we had is just upped and gone
Please please try -- try to be strong
Oh I apologize -- I didn't mean to lead you on

Where did we go wrong

Well you know there ain't nobody else
I'd be a fool trying to please myself
If I thought that there could be anybody else
Well you'll see now as time goes on
I'll be the one that you can lean upon
We'll dry out the tears and never have to say
That we were wrong
Ooh babe we'll get it on
