Lay All Your Love On Me

Charted: 7
  • I wasn't jealous before we met
    Now every woman I see is a potential threat
    And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
    You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice
    But now it isn't true
    Now everything is new
    And all I've learned has overturned
    I beg of you

    Don't go wasting your emotion
    Lay all your love on me

    It was like shooting a sitting duck
    A little smalltalk, a smile and baby I was stuck
    I still don't know what you've done with me
    A grown-up woman should never fall so easily
    I feel a kind of fear
    When I don't have you near
    Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
    I beg you dear

    Don't go wasting your emotion
    Lay all your love on me
    Don't go sharing your devotion
    Lay all your love on me

    I've had a few little love affairs
    They didn't last very long and they've been pretty scarce
    I used to think I was sensible
    It makes the truth even more incomprehensible
    'Cause everything is new
    And everything is you
    And all I've learned has overturned
    What can I do

    Don't go wasting your emotion
    Lay all your love on me
    Don't go sharing your devotion
    Lay all your love on me

    Don't go wasting your emotion
    Lay all your love on me
    Don't go sharing your devotion
    Lay all your love on me
    Don't go wasting your emotion
    Lay all your love on me Writer/s: BENNY GORAN BROR ANDERSSON, BJOERN K. ULVAEUS
