  • I'm in love with the girl that I'm talking about
    I'm in love with the girl I can't live without
    I'm in love but I sure picked a bad time
    To be in love
    To be in love

    Well, let her be somebody else's queen
    I don't want to know about it
    There's too many others that know what I mean
    And that's why I got to live without it

    I'm in love with the girl I'm talking about
    I'm in love with the girl I can't live without
    I'm in love but I feel like I'm wearin' it out
    I'm in love but I must have picked a bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love

    All the stories coming back to me
    From my friends and the people I don't want to see
    The things they say I know just couldn't be true
    At least not until I hear it from you

    'Cause I still love the little girl I'm talking about
    I'm in love with the girl I can't live without
    I'm in love but I feel like I'm wearin' it out
    I'm in love but I must have picked a bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love

    You know that I love the little girl I'm talking about
    I'm in love with the girl I can't live without
    I'm in love but it feels like I'm wearin' it out
    I'm in love but I must have picked a bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love
    A bad time to be in love Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
