Love, I've been thinkin' of you
And the things I used to do
And the trouble I make

Love, you'd be better off dead
With a bullet in your head
Than to come back to me

Keep it on the down low
Don't tell everybody you know
I loved you more than I showed

But I'm only a man
And my pride makes demands
That only ever lead me to sorrow

So burn all the letters I sent
For every word that I meant
There were two that were lies

And forget every nice thing I said
There were thoughts in my head
That would make you cry

Keep it on the down low
Don't tell everybody you know
I loved you more than I showed


But I'm only a man
And my pride makes demands
That only ever lead me to sorrow

I was makin' you sad
I have a heart but it is bad

Keep it on the down low
Don't tell everybody you know
I loved you more than I showed

But I'm only a man
And my pride makes demands
That only ever lead me to sorrow

So go, good luck try to grow
Break the habits I show
While you still got time

And find someone who cares
For you and himself
While you still got time
