Spoken: Here he comes now. I've got to tell him somehow.
I could put it off till later but it's best I do it now.

Baby listen to me there is something I must try to say
I've put it off so long but I've decided that today is the day
My love for you is dying
Oh no, please don't start crying
I take it back
I didn't mean it
Please forget the things I said
I take it back
I'm sorry
I must have been out
Of my head

Spoken: he's such a man. It must have hurt him a lot if he let me
See him cry. But I must try again... this time I'll say goodby.

Baby youve been good to me youve always been the best you could
So try to understand me now the way youve always understood
I can't go on another day
Oh please, don't look at me that way
I take it back
I didn't mean it
Please forget what I just said
I take it back
I'm sorry
I must have been out
Of my head

Spoken: Sometimes it's better to be loved, than it is to love.

    It takes me back to when iwas 17 in 1968. Ihad the record and lost along the way. Ihave been looking for this song and others by sandy posey because she was my favorite artist at this special time in my life. Still love the song.
