Use your words, it's the least you can do,
to keep a poor girl from wondering what's true.
If you lose your affection for long,
don't keep her weighing her rights and her wrongs.
Don't leave her guessing or keep her undressing,
if your heart ain't burning in the heat of her gaze.
Don't go on spending the feelings she's lending,
if your heart ain't bending to the sound of her name.
I know that it won't put a crack in your throat,
a scratch on your skin, or an ache in your bones.
But a girl can't pretend that she easily mends,
when she falls from the height of the hope you have set.
