Asked your permission, Didn't I ...
Asking, permission denied
To self medicate this way once in a while
Aren't you afraid of everything
Your love so you can't appreciate anything
Down on the sofa with a record running
Baby I can't help letting you down
Letting you down
Letting you down

Got your rejection, denied, crying
Coming apart right here before your eye
You aren't disappointed, are you now?
I'm still listening, just tell me what you want
I won't feel a thing, just tell me what you want
Leaving you alone wasn't my decision
Baby it's not easy letting you down
Letting you down
Letting you down

    General CommentI mostly agree with NewMoon.

    However, I'm not convinced that "Your love's the missing link," is right. I've listened to it a few times, paying close attention to that line, and I can't hear the "k" that goes long with "link". In my opinion, it seems like he's saying "Your love's listening,".
