Lay All Your Love On Me Lyrics

by Erasure

I wasn't jealous before we met
Now every woman I see is a potential threat
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice

But now it isn't true, now everything is new
And all I've learned has overturned, I beg of you

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
(Don't go sharing your devotion)

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still don't know what you've done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily

I feel a kind of fear when I don't have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride, I beg you dear

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I've had a few little love affairs
They didn't last very long and they've been pretty scarce
I used to think I was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible

'Cause everything is new and everything is you
And all I've learned has overturned, what can I do?

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

(Don't go)
Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
