Roy Clark – Lonesome Too Long lyrics

Don't smother your love with small questions
Design for your own reassurance
Don't think of your love as just being
Some kind of love some insurance.

Grow up but let her grow with you
Stand by her side right or wrong
I didn't find these things out soon enough
And I have been lonesome too long.

Don't let yourself think that you own her
But stand by yourself by her side
Be honest with strenght and with weakness
Be careful of ego and pride.

Be firm but learn to be gentle
Lead her but don't tag along
I didn't find these things out soon enough
And I have been lonesome too long...
