(t. britten, s. shifrin)
Producer: terry britten
Album: private dancer (84)

I made a resolution and I plan to keep my work
But I need you to make it work
You've got to read the message, understand what's on my mind
Cause not to see would be a crime
And we could lose it anytime

We've got to show some respect
We've got to learn to protect
Don't take it for granted, I know
That if you want to stay close
We've got to show some respect

But I believe in working, then I believe in a little help
Cause I'm not a light unto myself
Without a thing of value, why settle for second best
We don't know what's up ahead
And we can't let ourselves forget

We've got to show some respect
We've got to learn to protect
Don't take it for granted, I know
That if you want to stay close
We've got to show some respect

For the things that I love about you
From the woman that you see inside
Don't let it walk out the door
Love follows everytime
