Lyrics

Here I am late again for the last time
And like I promised I just told her goodbye
Please believe me for this time, it’s really over
And darling you know I wouldn’t lie
Didn’t I come and tell you about her
How temptation lured she and I
But now I know it was only fascination
And darling you know I wouldn’t lie
I had to led her down easy as slow as I could
After all she’s got feelings too
But it took a little longer than I thought it would
But this time she knows we’re really through
She wanted to hold me forever
And this lipstick shows her final try
And these tears on my shoulders are provin’ that she failed
And darling you know I wouldn’t lie
