No Alibis

  • I beg your pardon, hello darlin'
    This is me you're talkin' to
    Sit down and tell me about it
    You don't have to shout it at me
    Tell me what you really want to do

    [Chorus:]
    Don't give me no alibis
    No untrue stories you're trying to justify
    Don't want no alibis
    Just another reason for another lie

    Mountain gets steeper
    The hole you dig gets deeper
    You better stop and climb out
    'Cause I'm trying to give it all to you
    Baby I can see right through you
    Sometimes you lose what it's all about

    Don't give me no alibis
    Can't go through life trying to justify
    Don't want no alibis
    Just another reason for another lie

    [Chorus]

    Mountain gets steeper
    The hole you dig is getting deeper
    Better reach out and pull yourself out
    Nobody ever gonna love you the way that I love you
    And I never want to see you doin' without

    [Chorus: x2] Writer/s: JERRY LYNN WILLIAMS
