My biggest mistake was lovin' you too much, and lettin' you know

'Cause now you got me where you want me, and you gonna let me go

 

My pride is all gone, whether right or wrong

I need you, baby, I'm gonna keep on keepin' on

 

I'm tryin' to do my best

Yeah, I'm tryin' to do my best

Don't do it, baby

Don't you break my heart now

 

I go down to the river and there I'll be

I'm gonna jump right in, baby, if you don't see about me

I'm tryin' to do my best

Yeah, I'm tryin' to do my best

Don't do it, baby

 

Open up your eyes, can't you see I need you?

Open up your heart, can't you see I love you?

I can't go on without you, My life's no good without you

I can't go on without you, My life's no good without you

 

Yeah, don't you do it

Please, don't do it, baby

Don't you break my heart now
