lyrics

I’ve paid my debt as the man with his love in his hands
I’ve paid my dues with the love that was lost
I’d give it up if I could but it runs in my blood
I gave it all with no worry of the cost

But then I saw you walking down the stairs
walking with your hair across your face
and I couldn’t help but stare
fatefully afraid that in the morning I’d be lonesome when I’d wake

No need to talk about it
No I need more, No I need more than I’ve got now.
No need to talk about it
No I need more, No I need more than I’ve got now.

And say I left it for the money and the house worth keeping
And say I didn’t let you go
Say I saw you in the garden in the early morning
trying hard to make it grow
I’m still here, thinking only of the road.

So here we are now love, bruised and broke
I’ve been stuck down here too long
with a love like this that you can’t resist
but you know that it’s all wrong

then I saw you laying there
with your hair still wet from the sweat of his brow
and I couldn’t help but stare
standing scared, I got stuck and I don’t know how

No need to talk about it
No I need more, No I need more than I’ve got now.
No need to talk about it
No I need more, No I need more than I’ve got now.

And say I left it for the money and the house worth keeping
And say I didn’t let you go
Say I saw you in the garden in the early morning
trying hard to make it grow
but I’m still here, thinking only of the road.

So say it to me now darling
Say it to me now
that I belong to no one, I belong to no one but the road
Say it to me now Darling, say it to me now.
