Sometimes I mistake my heartache for bliss
Come on, now, baby-- let's seal it with a kiss
No one need avenge you if no one does harm
No one here can lay on your memory bed
Where you kissed your mother, your father on the head
No one understands you when-- but I've got to try
Oh, someone's got to try

Come on, play that 45 and dance like sin
I'll lock up the doors, honey, no one'll come in
You're beautiful alone but with so much to give
To the world
So why not let 'em in?

Shakin' all these branches for love to fall
It's hard when you're looking down to see it all
The leaves are all landing and nothing's there
Laying on the highest limb, pulling down stars
Calling your name-- I've traveled so far
No one understands you here, but I've got to try

Come on, play that 45 and dance like sin
I'll lock up the doors, honey, no one'll come in
You're beautiful alone but with so much to give
To the world
So why not let 'em in?

Come on, play that 45 and dance like sin
I'll lock up the doors, honey, no one'll come in
You're beautiful alone but with so much to give
To the world
So why not let 'em in?

Come on, play that 45 and dance like sin
I'll lock up the doors, honey, no one'll come in
You're beautiful alone but with so much to give
To the world
