Susan wants to take me 
To a party over yonder  Susan wants to take me 
To her heart 
It's a arm and tender place there, 
Do you know
Susan, I've been living here 
In this fortress 
And it's filled with armor 
And sometimes celebrations 
Lose their charm

 Susan do you mind, 
 Sometimes I'm restless  Rolling on the floor in pain and woe
 After all the precious gifts you
Will gladly give to me, girl
I may blindly lock and bolt the door

Baby, sweet baby
I'll truly love you through my years 
Well it's just that sometimes 
By midnight light
I'm frightened by my fears 
But if you could just hold me, 
Warm me, girl
The way you did today 
And tenderly anoint my eyes
Then I may see the way
Susan, baby, take me to that party 
'Way over yonder 

Tell me, Susan, do you mind
Come on, Susan, take the time
Tell me, Susan, do you mind
If I've been blind a long time?
I been blind a long time

Sometimes, see, if you're
Not careful 
A little hurt, pain in your heart 
Will make you blind  Blind to the real thing, once
It comes along
Honey, can you wait, baby
Can you wait for me, till I 
Get this thing together?
I been blind, I been blin, 
 Blind a long time
 Sweet Susan, take the time, girl

Susan, can you understand 
If I say I love you, baby
Tell me, Susan, mama,
Do you mind?
Girl, I been blind.
