I'm spending too much time with her problems
Worrying about what she might think
Her hold on my heart, you know it drives me crazy
And buddy, I'm on the brink

Thought I'd worked my way through all of the heartaches
Jealously, anger, and pain
But this feeling I've got, it's so doggone desperate, man
I'll have to do it all over again

I'm awake late at night, an emotional fool
Making vows to myself that I can't keep
Another know it all, lonesome man of the world
Who can't stop crying himself to sleep

If push comes to shove
Seems like this labor of love
Is just too much work for me

I'm awake late at night, an emotional fool
Making vows to myself that I can't keep
Another know it all, lonesome man of the world
Who can't stop crying himself to sleep

If push comes to shove
Seems like this labor of love
Is just too much work for me

I can't stop thinking about her
It's a sad but natural fact
She's a devil and a saint
And a whole lot more that I ain't
I want this monkey off of my back

Now, people bad love's an addiction
Same as cocaine and cheap whiskey, too
When you're a prisoner of love
That's all that you think of
You act confused and you ain't got a clue
