Love You Too Much

Album: Greg Lake (1981)
  • My Mama told me you were bad news honey
    She said you're gonna ruin my life
    'Cause I love you too much
    Yeah I love you too much

    I want to leave you, there's no denying
    I must have tried a million times
    But I love you too much
    I just love you too much

    I stand convicted, behind the bars of love
    For me there is no escape
    Not even mercy from Heaven above
    You've got me falling this way and that way
    Anyway you just ain't here
    And I love you too much (love you too much)
    I love you too much (love you too much)

    Well you can take me honey, steal my money
    You can step on my blue suede shoes
    'Cause I love you too much
    Yeah I love you too much

    I declare it a state of emergency, baby, dial 999
    You've got to help me I'm falling
    I just don't know if I can make it this time

    'Cause I love you too much
    You know I love you too much

    So baby why do you hate me and mutilate me?
    I wish you'd get out of my life
    'Cause I love you too much
    You know I love you too much

    I feel frustrated, like a tiger in a cage
    You gotta release me, before I fly into a screaming rage
    You know I really ought to put you down
    Before you make a fool out of me

    But I love you too much
    Yeah I love you too much

    So think of what you're doing, leading me to ruin
    Don't be cruel baby, can't you see
    That I love you too much (love you too much)
    I just love you too much (love you too much)

    You've got me falling this way and that way
    Anyway you just ain"t here
    And I love you too much
    Yeah, I love you too much

    Well, you can take me, honey
    Steel my money
    You can step on my blue suede boots
    'Cause I love you too much
    Yeah, I love you too much

    Well, even if you hurt me Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
