  • He could be a sinner, or a gentleman
    He could be a preacher, when your soul is damned
    He could be a lawyer on a witness stand
    But he'll never love you like I can, can

    He could be a stranger, he gave a second glance
    He could be a trophy of a one night stand
    He could have your humor, but I don't understand
    'Cause he'll never love you like I can, can, can

    Why are you looking down all the wrong roads?
    When mine is the heart and the salt of the soul
    There may be lovers who hold out their hands
    But they'll never love you like I can, can, can
    They'll never love you like I can, can

    A chance encounter of circumstance
    Baby, he's a mantra, keeps your mind entranced
    He could be the silence in this mayhem, but then again
    He'll never love you like I can, can, can

    Why are you looking down all the wrong roads?
    When mine is the heart and the salt of the soul
    There may be lovers who hold out their hands
    But they'll never love you like I can, can, can
    They'll never love you like I can, can, can
    They'll never love you like I can, can, can

    We both have demons that we can't stand
    I love your demons, like devils can
    If you're self-seeking, an honest man
    Then stop deceiving, Lord, please

    Why are you looking down all the wrong roads?
    When mine is the heart and the salt of the soul
    There may be lovers who hold out their hands
    But they'll never love you like I can, can, can
    They'll never love you like I can, can, can
    He'll never love you like I can, can, can Writer/s: Matthew Alan Prime, Samuel Frederick Smith
