Pat Benatar – I Won't lyrics

I was there when you cried like a baby
When you thought that maybe
Things werent goin your way
I was there when you asked me
Just cause you asked me and I didn't hesitate

Now that I need you, you turn away
Like I was nothing, like it was a big mistake
Come on baby, you know it aint right
Tell me how do you sleep at night?


I wont behave, sit quietly by while you take
Everything that I keep inside of me
I wont be still, Oh no, not I
Cause there's no way that I'd stay here
Id rather die than love you
Id rather die than love you
You know that I would rather die

It isn't fair to take someones heart
Tear it apart, use it like you don't care
How does it feel to be hurt
Its gonna get worse
Its gonna get ugly, I swear

How many tears can one person cry
How much is enough
Whens it time to say goodbye
Come on baby, you know it aint right
Tell me how do you sleep at night?
