I've been waiting for you to come
Staring out at the setting sun
You've been running 'round again
With that boy you call your friend

And it's driving me insane
Does he make you say his name?
And you can't get it off your tongue
little girl, you are not so young

Does it hurt when you lie to me
If you'd asked, I would set you free
But the time to forgive is gone
The day has passed, the night has come

Ain't you worried what I'll do?
And that boy should worry, too.
Can you face me for what you've done?
Little girl, you are not so young.

Oh, is he ready to die for you, baby?
Naw, but you know I was.
I've found a living,
But I would have given it all for the girl I love.

Oh, is he ready to die for you, baby?
Now that the deed is done.
I'm just waiting for night,
And the fading light of the setting sun.

Tell me when did I lose your love?
Was it him you were thinking of,
All those nights when you made me swoon,
Making love beneath the moon?

Were you dreaming of his touch?
When you couldn't get enough.
Was there truth in the songs you sung?
Little girl, you're not so young.

Well, I could never betray your love,
You had me, heart and soul.
You might never have known it, girl,
But I was all yours
I know I'll never reclaim your love,
But that's just how it goes.
I ain't the person I was this morning when the sun rose.
Well, I could never betray your love,
You had me, heart and soul.
You might never have known it, girl,
But I was all yours.
I know I'll never reclaim your love,
But that's just how it goes.
I ain't the person I was this morning when the sun rose.
I know I'll never replace your love and that's as hard as it gets.
So I'll be taking a life this evening when the sun sets.
