"Just Enough Rope" as written by Karen Ruth Staley and Steven A. Dean....
You've got me wrapped around your finger
Like a yo-yo on a string
Playing games with my heart
And I can't do a thing
Well you throw me down than you snap
Me up I'm in the palm of your hand
Why you get your kicks doin'
All these tricks I'll never understand

You give me just enough rope, just enough hope
Just enough ties that bind
Just enough love but not enough
Off security or piece of mind
You give me just enough slack then
You yank me back right before I'm gone
You give me just enough rope
Just enough hope to keep me hangin' on

Well you tell me that you love me
Then you push me away
How you're gonna treat me changes day to day
Well you build me up then you tear me down
And when you've got me standing tall
You pull the rug out from under me just to watch me fall

You give me just enough rope
Just enough hope, just enough ties that bind
Just enough love but not enough
Off security or piece of mind
You give me just enough slack then
You yank me back right before I'm gone
You give me just enough rope
Just enough hope to keep me hangin' on

You give me just enough rope
Just enough hope, just enough ties that bind
Just enough love but not enough
Off security or piece of mind
You give me just enough slack then
You yank me back right before I'm gone
You give me just enough rope
Just enough hope to keep me hangin' on
