We're caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Why can't you see
What you're doing to me
When you don't believe a word I say?

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)
And we can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

So, if an old friend I know
Stops by to say hello
Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Here we go again
Asking where I've been
You can't see these tears are real
I'm crying (Yes I'm crying)

We can't go on together
With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)
And be can't build our dreams
On suspicious minds

Oh let our love survive
Or dry the tears from your eyes
Let's don't let a good thing die
When honey, you know
I've never lied to you
Mmm yeah, yeah

We're caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Why can't you see
What you're doing to me
When you don't believe a word I say?

Don't you know I'm caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Don't you know I'm caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Don't you know I'm caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Don't you know I'm caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Don't you know I'm caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Don't you know I'm caught in a trap
I can't walk out
Because I love you too much baby

Don't you know I'm caught in a trap

    General Comment:i absolutely love this song, the intro is so addictive
    i also love when it gets really slow and then it speeds up again
    they definately need to do a remix of this song like they did with rubbernecking or a little less conversation

    this song is basically about how he loves her so much but he feels trapped because of her suspicions. he's like don't throw our love away and keeps trying to convince her of his innocence

    he can't let go of her love but he just can't keep going on like this - it has to end and he's promised he's never lied - love the song!

    General Comment:Funny scene in Breathless when they play this tune (shower fun).

    Anyway, this is such a great tune when it's cranked up.

    General Comment:i love this song! i've only heard it a few times before... but after hearing it in the movie Black Hawk Down... i've listened to it every day. What it means... well... it's pretty obvious! i'm sure you've been suspiciuos at least once when a girl/boyfriend talks or goes out with a friend of the opposite sex. but what he is trying to get across is that he loves his girl and wants her to trust him that she is the only one he wants to be with. they can't have a good relationship if she doesn't trust him when he talks to others.

    General Comment:he screwed around on her once and she has sort of forgiven him, but doesn't want to move on, cause it hurt real bad and he's saying he loves her and he never meant to fuck around, but she needs to get over it and move on so they can be together.

    General Comment:I love Elvis, but this has to be the most overplayed of all Elvis songs and I hate the radio stations for it, he has hundreds of other great songs they they never play, idiots.

    Anyway, it's about two people that don't trust each other and can't figure out what to do with thier relationship, they sound like they both need help. maybe that's why the chorus is so repeatitive. It represents the monotnous cycle of indecision and procrastination. Niether has the guts to be honest so they make up fears of the other lying.

    A psychiatrist would have fun with this song. Is there is doctor in the house?

    General Comment:^^^ true.. great song, probably the only one u will hear occasionally on the radio.. along with hound dog / blue suede shoes.. welcome to Elvis commercialised... i am sick to death of the two latter songs.. basically the only two songs he is known for.. if you come across some Elvis-illiterate dim wit, please do make an effort to point them into the right direction, shedding some light onto the kings best material

    General Comment:This is pretty good, but too soft for me. I think the Dwight Yoakam version is way better, and the quality on the CD is better because it's newer as well. I also like Yoakams voice better.
