When I’m with you and with you looking like you do,
It snaps my brittle heart in two, to think I ever could lose you.
And Honey, Honey,
When you’re not here, I get this ringing in my ears,
To think you’d ever disappear, well that just cripples me my dear.
And Honey, Honey,

Through darkest night until the dawn,
You are the light to which I’m drawn.
Don’t give me a break,
I’ve had all the breaks a heart can bear.
No, no, no, don’t set me free,
Just don’t, just don’t.

I need you more than a life raft needs the shore,
The waves come lapping at my door; a sadness never felt before.
And Honey, Honey,
Your red night sky that says, “Tomorrow will be fine”,
Well, I could never read the signs. I only read between the lines.
And Honey, Honey,

A million stars that hang in space,
They ain’t got nothing on your face.
Don’t give me a break,
I’ve had all the breaks a heart can bear.
No, no, no, don’t set me free,
Just don’t, just don’t.

There’s no one I could love instead.
You got me hanging by a thread.
You’re all I adore,
And Baby, anyone with half a brain could see,

So, don’t set me free.
Just don’t, just don’t,
Go setting me free,
Just don’t, just don’t,
Don’t set me free,
Baby, ‘cause liberty is wasted on me.

So don’t, please.
