(bob mcdill/dickie lee/bucky jones)

I'll bet that you're surpised to see me
Wonder what i'm doing at your door
But you can't be more surprised than i am
I thought i didn't need you anymore
Thought there was something waiting out there
Something i wanted but now it's so clear

Baby it's a cold, cold world
Out here tonight
It's nothing at all like i thought i'd find
So if you wonder why i'm standing here
I'm a little long on lonely, a little short on pride

If you slam the door, i wouldn't blame you
You've got every reason to turn me down
I was so sure i had the answers
After what i've been through, i'm not sure now
I won't say i love you, don't know if it's true
I will say i need you, god knows i do

Baby it's a cold, cold world
Out here tonight
It's nothing at all like i thought i'd find
So if you wonder why i'm standing here
I'm a little long on lonely, a little short on pride
I'm a little long on lonely, a little short on pride
