(Rodney Crowell)

In this modern world we're livin' in
The rules ain't like they've ever been
Speakin' of spreading it thin
That's what you do, flashing your soul
That ain't no way to treat your lover
Ain't no way to act with feelings
Baby, better start turnin' 'em down

Now it's a brave new wave we're roarin' in
Hanging out, out on the rock'n'roll fringe
Speaking of running around
All over town, lettin' it show
That ain't no way to treat your lover
Ain't no way to act in public
Baby, you better start turnin' 'em down
Start to sturnin' down

Sire is clear ain't nothin' easy any more
Sure gets cloudy when I look in all directions
Sure is rainin' like this feeling in my heart
Sure is crazy how you're acting

In this latest craze or current trent
Burnin' money every way that you can
Speakin' of going for broke
That's how it is and lettin' it show
That ain't no way to treat your lover
Ain't no way to act with strangers
Baby, you better start turnin' 'em down
Start to turnin' down

Baby, better start turnin'
Baby, better start turnin'
Baby, better start turnin' 'em down
