lyrics

well I ain’t so slow that I don’t know
that you put on a show when I’m around.
and I ain’t so mean that I ain’t seen
the way you look to me to calm you down,

but there’s too many ways to break a heart.
there’s too many ways to fall apart.
there’s too many things that I could do to let you down,
and I ain’t so green that I ain’t seen
the way love slips away without a sound.

well you ain’t so bad that I ain’t had
a thought or two about you in the dark.
and it ain’t true that I don’t dream of you
from time to time when we’re apart,

but there’s too many ways to steal a kiss.
far too many memories to miss.
I’ll be at your mercy, babe, the moment that we start,
and I ain’t so green that I ain’t seen
the damage love can do an open heart.

baby, give me everything you’ve got!
pull me from the wreckage of the battles that I’ve fought.
I haven’t got the strength to battle you,
so maybe you could show me somethin new.

well I ain’t so cold that I ain’t told you
you’re the one I want to keep me warm.
and I ain’t so dumb that I won’t come to you
when I need shelter from the storm.

and there’s so many ways to fall in love.
there’s so many fears to rise above.
there’s so many sorry stories written in my soul,
but I ain’t so green that I ain’t seen
the way love makes the broken-hearted whole.

baby, give me everything you’ve got!
pull me from the wreckage of the battles that I’ve fought.
I haven’t got the strength to battle you,
so maybe you could show me somethin new.
