  • Well I've come to know the look on your face
    When you're lying about where you've been
    Or how much you spent

    I know when you will raise your fingers
    To your mouth as if to wipe away the shame
    It's not a game I know you feel bad

    [Chorus]
    If you ask for my forgiveness
    If you call my name I will come
    If you ask for my love I will give you some

    Someday I know you will understand
    Someday you'll finally realize
    What you're doing to yourself

    [Chorus]

    We've been dancing to
    That same old song over and over again
    I want to be your lover
    I don't want to be your policeman

    So tonight when you finally make
    Your way back to our door
    I'll let you sleep it off like I did the night before

    When you ask for my forgiveness
    When you call my name I will come
    When you ask for my love I will give you some

    In the morning I will get you up and
    I will smile just when you want me to
    'Cause I'm, I'm all you have Publisher: MELANIE HOWARD MUSIC, INC.
