I keep waitin'
For you to do, some I don't like
I keep waitin'
But everything you do, you do all right
You give me love when I want you
You leave me alone when I don't
Somethin' says I ought to leave you
But somethin' tells me I won't

'Cause you keep tightening up on me
And I can't break away
'Cause you keep tightening up on me with a sweet love every day
It scares me just a little bit knowin' I'll never be free
Woman, I'm at your mercy
'Cause you keep
Tightening up
Tightening up
Tightening up on me
Yeah
Ooh yeah
La la la

Your kind of love
Makes it hard for a man to say no to you
One look at me
And I know I've got to go to you
Even when I'm lookin' away
In my mind I can see you
I ain't sure that I love you, baby
But I know that I need you

'Cause you keep tightening up on me
And I can't break away
'Cause you keep tightening up on me with a sweet love every day
It scares me just a little bit knowin' I'll never be free
Woman, I'm at your mercy
'Cause you keep
Tightening up
Tightening up
Tightening up on me
Yeah
Ooh yeah

You keep tightening up on me
I can't break away
But you keep tightening up on me with a sweet love every day
