Listen
If you're askin me if I
Know what real love feels like
If I ever loved anyone inside,
You can't be serious (serious)
Cause I was the one giving all I had
Kept my promises all in tact
Better or worse I'll honor that.
I can show you all about love

Baby I can love you, love you, love you with my hands tied
I can please you, please you, please you with my hands tied
Everything you need is right here
It's just staring you in your face
Stop asking me if I'm ready
Cause this is just what I'll say
Cause I could love you, love you, love you
With my hands tied, my hands tied, my hands tied, hands tied

Don't ever question my love
I love hard in spite of
Heart breaks and being let down
You see I've been around been around
I was the woman trying to patch it up
Not once did I say I've had enough
All of the best you're thinking of
I can show you all about love

Baby I can love you, love you, love you with my hands tied
I can please you, please you, please you with my hands tied
Everything you need is right here
It's just staring you in your face
Stop asking me if I'm ready
Cause this is just what I'll say
Cause I could love you, love you, love you
With my hands tied, with my hands tied, with my hands tied, hands tied

Now I don't need my hands to feel the things I feel inside
Cause I know what's inside my heart.
It's love.
I don't have to hold you like that
I don't have to touch you like that
Cause you know the truth is that
I can love you with one hand tied behind my back

Baby I can love you, love you, love you with my hands tied
I can please you, please you, please you with my hands tied
Everything you need is right here
It's just staring you in your face
Stop asking me if I'm ready
Cause this is just what I'll say
Cause I could love you, love you, love you
With my hands tied, hands tied, with my hands tied

    Watching someone you love, knowing you can treat them so much better than what they're receiving... But leaving them because you love them so much that once they're happy... You're happy.
