That’s what you say
Each time that I hold you this way
When I feel like this and I want to kiss you
Baby, don’t say don’t
leave my embrace
For here in my arms is your place
When the night grows cold and I want to hold you
Baby, don’t say don’t (Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t)
If you think that this is just a game
If you think that I don’t mean
Every word I’m saying
Don’t (Don’t) Don’t (Don’t)
Don’t feel that way
I’m your love and yours I will stay
This you can believe
I will never leave you
Heaven knows I won’t
(Don’t) Baby, don’t say don’t
(Don’t, please, don’t)
