Have a Heart

Shut up.
Don't lie to me.
You think I'm blind,
I've got eyes to see.

How do you do?
Oh, pardon me,
I thought I knew you.

Would you stand back baby, 'cause I want to get a better look.
This big man who couldn't handle the little bit of love he took.

Hey, hey, 
Have a heart, have a heart.
If you don't love me why don't you let me go?

Have a heart please, 
oh, don't you have a heart?
Little by little you fade and I fall apart.

Oh darling, I love you so.
I told you yes, and then you told me no.
Oh baby, how can you say?
You should be free and I should pay and pay.

And you talk and talk about you and what you need.
But sooner or later your love is gonna make you bleed.

Talk on, talk on, but love is what you need
And sooner or later that love is gonna make you bleed

But don't you run away baby, now
