One very happy warm summer night
I saw your face, what could I do
So carefully I walked straight up to you

And in the shadows of a moonlit nite
I saw those eyes a shinin' through
Oh heart of gold, I love you misty blue
Oh blue

Oh, it's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're lovin' someone else
Strung out and hung up on you

I feel like Bogart in a crazy movie
Ah, Bogie and me, we never beg
But this time maybe I've got voices in my head

They're sayin' that he's never been good to ya
And he's always hurt and let you down
If what you need is good lovin', I'll be around

It's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're lovin' someone else
Strung out and hung up on you

Strung out
Strung out... my my my my my my

(Guitar solo)

Hey

Well, it's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
Because they're lovin' someone else
Strung out and hung up on you, hey

It's hard to love somebody
Oh when they don't belong to you
Because they're lovin' someone else
Strung out and hung up on you
Strung out and hung up on you...

Yeah
Strung out
Yeah
Strung out
Strung out
Strung out
Strung out
Strung out
