Curtis Stigers – There's More To Makin' Love (Than Layin' Down) lyrics

You got a dirty little secret
You got rocks in your head
You went looking for love pretty baby
Ended up in someone else's bed

You got the heat and the passion
You got the cash and the clothes
But you're still living a lie little girl
And you don't even want to know
Just keep your eyes closed and go home alone

You can't make love without heart and soul honey
There's more to makin' love than gettin' around
You can't make love outta s** and drugs and money
There's more to makin' love
There's more to makin' love
Than layin' down

Sounds like the perfect situation
Sounds like no strings attached
But who's gonna hold you when the party's over
And everybody wants their real lives back

Who's gonna be here to thrill you
When the beast goes back in the cage
Who's your Romeo and Juliet
When all the other actors want to leave the stage

Mama never told you there'd be days like these
And daddy never guessed you'd be on your knees
In the gutter baby
All you really wanted was someone to hold
But all you really got is left out in the cold
With nothin' baby
You got nothin'

Written by C. Stigers and D. Kortchmar
