Baby we can talk all night
But that ain't getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There's nothin' left inside of here

And maybe you can cry all night
But that'll never change the way that I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn't make me leave here

I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I'm tired of words and I'm too hoarse to shout
But you've been cold to me so long
I'm cryin' icicles instead of tears
And all I can do is keep on tellin' you

I want you, oh, I need you
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad, oh, 'cause two out of three ain't bad
Now don't be sad no 'cause two out of three ain't bad

You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You'll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you're lookin' for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there ain't no Coupe de Ville hidin'
At the bottom of a cracker jack box

I can't lie, I can't tell you that I'm somethin' I'm not
No matter how I try, I'll never be able
To give you somethin', somethin' that I just haven't got

Well, there's only one girl I will ever love
That was so many year ago
And though I know I'll never get her out of my heart
Never loved me back, ooh I know

I remember how she left me on a stormy night
She kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away
And she kept on tellin' me, kept on tellin' me, kept on tellin' me

I want you, oh, I need you
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad no, oh, 'cause two out of three ain't bad

I want you, oh, I need you
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't, now don't, now don't look at me on your bed, on your bed
Now don't be sad no, oh, 'cause two out of three ain't bad

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain't getting us nowhere
