Oh, I cry for love that’s gone
A love that can’t be mine
Well, I pay every day for loving you
Darling, deep down inside
Oh, how am I going to tell you?
How am I going to let you know?
That night and day I’m thinking about you
And it’s killing me so low

Chorus:
The temptation of you is oh so strong
Now, I know I can’t have you
Why can’t I leave you alone?

Oh, I know about this trouble
Oh, it’s here to stay
That’s why I’m keeping my distance
Oh, praying that you come my way
Praying that you come my way
Oh, praying that you come my way

Repeat Chorus

Oh, I want you to come see me
Oh, late at night
That’s when we’ll pull down the shades, darling
And we’ll turn down the lights
Oh, I don’t want to hurt myself
Don’t want to drive you away

That’s why I’m keeping my distance
Oh, I’m praying that you
Come my way
Praying that you
Come my way
Oh, praying that you
Come my way
