I could call your mother to tell her the truth
She could give the message to you
I could write a letter or give you a note, but I won't

because you're better off
to never know
my aliby
which is loving you so

I never cheated or looked astray
Don't know who spread that fire
But I think that you know deep down inside
You are my hearts desire

I hold you back when I hold your hand
you're better off when your own man

baby take your last look don't say goodbye
love don't mean that much anyway
Don't give me a hard time if I close my eyes
I'm o.k.

    General CommentThis is such a lovely song. The melody is simple, and exhibits just how immense Dia's voice is.

    Sad there are no other comments. Hopefully, some time in the near future, M&D and the guys will get the recognition they deserve.
