To Love You Only Leaves Me Lonely

lyrics

I just wanted to say that I’ll be on my way
I’ve got to leave you -- leave you today

Though Lord knows how I’ve tried to patch the place inside
Where you hit me when I was open wide

Then you grin rattlin’ on my chains
To love you only leaves me lonely
To love you only leaves me lonely

You stuck your stinger deep now you’re a dyin’ bee
But you’re still buzzin’ --buzzin’ around me

So I’m out on the town, new women around
But what’s that buzzin’? What’s that buzzin’ sound?

Then you grin rattlin’ on my chains
To love you only leaves me lonely
To love you only leaves me lonely

I don’t like to love you
I don’t like to love you
I don’t like to love you
I don’t like to love you
To love you only leaves me lonely
To love you only leaves me lonely
