A Woman in Love (It's Not Me)

Album: Hard Promises (1981)
  • She laughed in my face, told me good-bye
    Said "Don't think about it, you can go crazy
    Any thing can happen, anything can end
    Don't try to fight it, don't try to save me"

    She's a woman in love
    And he's gonna break her heart to pieces
    She don't want to see
    She's a woman in love, but it's not me

    Well all rig ht, do what you want
    Don't try to talk, don't say nothin'
    She used to be the kind of woman
    You have and you hold, she could understand the problem
    She let the little things go

    She's a woman in love
    And he's gonna break her heart to pieces
    But she don't want to know
    She's a woman in love, she can't let go

    Time after time, night after night
    She would look up at me and say she was lonely
    I don't understand what she needed
    I gave her everything, she threw it all away on nothin'
    She's a woman in love
