Lover Please

  • A shot in the dark I woke up to find
    You had broke all the rules
    And you changed your mind
    Didn't I love you good
    Didn't I love you right
    Then tell me where are you going
    Dressed to kill tonight
    Oh this one's gonna hurt like hell

    Answer my prayer and answer the phone
    Think twice about it honey
    Turn around and come on home
    Lover stop lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover please

    It's the same old tune
    I have sung before
    It's the same old game
    It's just a different score
    If there was just one thing
    I could call my own
    It would be your love
    That's sinking like a stone
    Oh this one's gonna hurt like hell

    Answer my prayer and answer the phone
    Think twice about it honey
    Turn around and come on home
    Lover stop lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover please

    And they hold you like I want to
    And the give you want I want to
    And they take it like I want to
    And they make it and they break it
    Why must you reject me
    Why can't you protect me

    Answer my prayer and answer the phone
    Think twice about it honey
    Turn around and come on home
    Lover stop lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover

    Answer my prayer and answer the phone
    Think twice about it honey
    Turn around and come on home
    Lover stop lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover please

    Lover stop
    Lover don't
    Lover stop
    Lover lover please
