You got me 03:24
Well I’ve been down so many times before love of a woman put me on the killing floor I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what to do I’m sinking low, all because of you you know you got me, you got me down on my knees I’m begging you baby, oh baby please I heard all the stories that the other man say I know you know the rules of this loving game I’m asking you babe, stop running around looking for you takes up all of my time you know you got me, you got me down on my knees I’m begging you baby, oh baby please I give you my money and everything I give you my time , hang around with me I give my loving ,I give you my dreams I’m telling you baby, oh baby please
8.
Look at the good times only when you get too far when you thing you are breaking down and your body falls apart wait out ‘till the morning to find out where you are sometimes it gets too crazy when you wait out in the dark and if your soul is sinking low and you got no place to go try to remember ,keep on keeping on Now you are running around the world, chasing on a dream you are living on desire, breaking at the seams you got no place to lay your head, no one to call your friend can you hear thunder rolling, this might be the end now your soul is sinking low , you got no place to go remember baby, keep on keeping on now the world is going mad, you feel so sad inside and all your hopes turn in to fears and tears you can’t hide all the loving turns to hate, your friends will let you down and now you see that all your dreams are crumbling on the ground now your soul is sinking low, you got no place to go try to remember keep on keeping on
9.
I was dreaming of the past, all my good times never last I was dreaming of you, now you gone, nothing I can do Love and life is not for ever, it gets waisted in the wind all I have is just today and all the things that I can dream I was flying through time and space lost and lonely, trying to join the human race I was home I was on the run, I’ll be there when judgment day comes Love and life is not for ever, it gets waisted in the wind all we have is just today and all the love that we can give
