Tell me once and tell me twice,
But what’s the good of good advice
That I can’t take,
Waiting for your heart to break?
Sit beside me, let me hold you.
Just forget the things I told you
All my words have turned to grey.
And it’s taken so long,
And though I could be wrong,
Now I think I’m on top,
And I can stop
As you’re turning, I’m still praying
I can talk you into staying
One more day:
I can’t let you get away.
’Cause it’s taken so long.
Baby, maybe you’re wrong.
When you make me complete,
Maybe I can beat
There’s no promise I can make
That you and I know I won’t break
Before too long:
Plans are weak and wind is strong.
Tell me once and tell me twice:
You tell me that you’ll pay the price
That love demands,
Just to hold me in your hands
As we’re learning to live
With the take and the give
On the carnival ride
That is love inside
