Lyrics

Maybe you don’t know me any more than I know you
And I wouldn’t blame you if you walked away
I’ve been watching you all evening with those teardrops in your eyes
And it touches me much more than I can say
You know I hate to think that someone could have hurt someone like you
And if I was him I’d be right by your side

Lay your troubles on my shoulder
Put your worries in my pocket
Rest your love on me a while
Lay your troubles on my shoulder
Put your worries in my pocket
Rest your love on me a while

Saw you in the corner from the moment I walked in
Saw your lonely face across the room
No I won’t forget you and the way it could have been
Why’d you have to leave so soon
You know I hate to think there’s someone you loved instead of me
‘Cause at times like this I’d be right by your side

Lay your troubles on my shoulder
Put your worries in my pocket
Rest your love on me a while
Lay your troubles on my shoulder
Put your worries in my pocket
Rest your love on me a while
