Baby, don't you know
I hate it when you cry
When your tears fall down
I feel like I could die

Or disappear
And that's the fear that you have
But you've gotta follow you own path

I've always been told
The tighter that you hold,
You might just squeeze the life

Right out of your own soul
Love can take its toll on your heart
Why can't you finish what you start?
Love is cruel, Baby, love ain't fair

And there ain't no map
Or book of rules to get you there
It's just a friendly game of solitaire

Baby, can't you see
To love a man like me,
You gotta be crazier
Than any girl could ever be
