By chuck sabatino and michael mcdonald

From a promise to a lie
From lies to regret
Turn your back on truth baby
And that's always what you get
A man could drown in a love so deep baby

I'm not beggin' you to stay
It's just lonely talk
You don't hear a word I say
You just turn and walk away baby
If I'm on my knees and prayin'
To the lord above
When he listens to my prayer
He knows that it's just lonely talk

Well, I call your name
And I cry all night
Well, it's of no concern to you baby
Now that I'm out of your sight
A man could drown in a love so deep baby
