Baby you put my love on hold
You gave me a peek at the pot of gold
Now you're givin' me the run around

You gave a taste to a hungry heart
One day together and a month apart
Babe you put my love on hold

Chorus
Holdin' on to a ray of hope
To the end of a frayin' rope
Time is slow and the weather's cold
Baby when your love's on hold

Sittin' here wonderin' what to do
Until the next time I hear from you
And you're givin' me the run around

Why you reachin' if you won't take
The love that you get is the love you make
And this ain't the way to go

Chorus

Bridge
The call is waitin' from this heart of mine
You had my number all along
Now you're leavin' me hangin', hangin' on the line
But I won't be waitin' here too long

Tell me where do I stand with you
Are we just startin' or are we through
Baby are you hot or cold

I got things that I need to say
But you're makin' me feel like I'm in the way
And I'm not here to hang around

Chorus 2X
