Thin Line Between Love And Hate

Album: Thin Line Between Love And Hate (1971)
Charted: 15
  • It's a thin line, it's 5 o'clock in the morning
    And I'm just getting in, I knock on the door
    A voice sweet and low says, who is it?
    She opens up the door and lets me in
    Never do she once say, sir, where have you been?
    No, she says, are you hungry?
    Are you hungry, honey? Did you eat yet?
    Let me hang up your coat, your coat, your coat
    And the woman tells me, pass me your hat too
    All the time she smiles, never once raises her voice
    It's 5 o'clock in the morning

    1-It's a thin line between love and hate..

    2-The sweetest woman in the world
    Can be the meanest woman in the world
    If you make her that way, you keep on hurting her
    She keeps being quiet
    She might be holding something inside
    That really really hurt you one day

    Here I am laying in the hospital
    Bandaged from feet to head
    Ya see I'm in the state of shock
    Just that much from being dead
    I didn't think my woman could do something like this to me
    I didn't think she had the nerve, so here I am
    I guess action speaks louder than words
    (repeat 1, 2, 1)

    It's a thin line, between love and hate
