  • I have often heard you say
    You love me as a friend
    But I love you more than anyone
    You know I can't pretend no longer

    I would give you anything
    I'd throw my world
    But you don't want to hear that anymore
    And you want to hear me say

    Come on and lead me on
    Come on and tease me all night long
    Lovin' you I know it's right
    I'll always need you, I'll never leave you

    Come on and lead me on
    Tease me all night long
    I'd rather be a fool with a broken heart
    Than someone who never had a part of you

    You know I told you from the start
    Exactly how I feel
    Time goes on, seems nothing's changed
    I'm in love for real

    We have never played the games
    That real lovers do
    So maybe we are better off
    But, baby, I'd still like this from you

    Come on and lead me on
    Come on and tease me all night long
    Lovin' you I know it's right
    I'll always need you, I'll never leave you

    Come on and lead me on
    Tease me all night long
    I'd rather be a fool with a broken heart
    Than someone who never had a part of you

    Come on and lead me on (Come on and lead me)
    Come on and tease me all night long (Tease me all night long)
    I'd rather be a fool with a broken heart
    Than someone who never had a part of you

    Come on and lead me on (Come on and lead me)
    Tease me all night long (Tease me all night long)
    Lovin' you I know it's right
    I'll always need you, I'll never leave you

    Come on and lead me on
    Tease me all night long Writer/s: PETER H BROWN, ROBERT S RANS
