I've been everything that a man shouldn't be
I've done things a man won't do
And it's hard to believe what she sees in me
After all that I put her through.

But I guess that she knows when the bars finally close
She's the one that I'm thinkin' of
Well she could leave in the name of a heart full of pain
But she stays in the name of love.

She cries in the name of a feelin'
That same ole feelin' each time I'm gone
She knows when I say I'll be home right away
That it might take all night long.

She tries to pretend I won't hurt her again
When Lord knows she's hurt enough
She could leave in the name of a heart full of pain
But she stays in the name of love.

--- Instrumental ---

I go to the same ole places
The same ole faces are all I see
But I stay ev'ry night in the dim red light
While she waits all alone for me.

She could have any man in the palm of her hand
But I guess that she cares too much
Well, she could leave in the name of a heart full of pain
But she stays in the name of love.

She cries in the name of a feelin'
That same ole feelin' each time I'm gone
She knows when I say I'll be home right away
That it might take all night long.

She tries to pretend I won't hurt her again
When Lord knows she's hurt enough
She could leave in the name of a heart full of pain
But she stays in the name of love.

She could leave in the name of a heart full of pain
But she stays in the name of love...
