  • Lyrics
  • I've been in love so many times
    Thought I knew the score
    But now you've treated me sorta wrong
    I can't take anymore
    And it looks like
    I'm never gonna fall in love again

    Fall in love, I'm never gonna fall in lo-o-ve
    I mean it
    Fall in love a-a-a-a-a-a-a-gain

    All those things I heard about you
    I thought they were only lies
    But when I caught you in his arms
    I just broke down and cried
    And it looks like
    I'm never gonna fall in love again

    Fall in love, no, I'm never gonna fall in lo-o-ve
    I mean it, I mean it
    Fall in love a-a-a-a-a-a-a-gain

    I gave my heart so easily
    I cast aside my pride
    But when ya fell for someone else, baby
    I broke up all inside
    And it looks like
    I'm never gonna fall in love again

    Fall in love, no, I'm never gonna fall in lo-o-ve
    Please don't make me
    Fall in love againWriter/s: CURTIS MAYFIELD
