A true love story
Is hard to find
Can't get no rest
Got no peace of mind
You say you gave
Your heart to me
You put me down
You set me free

You said you're deadly
Everybody said you was deadly
I guess you know he is because

Deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly
Always takes you by surprise

There you was
The only one
Coming on me and ruining my fun

Leave me setting
At home all alone
Waitin' on your call by the telephone

You said you're deadly
Everybody said you was deadly
Guess you know you always was deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly

Finally made me realize
That I tried and tried
But you just cant get enough
So you lied and lied and lied
I will not be denied
I'm gonna plant a seed
I will not be denied
Of the man and the love I need

Said you're deadly
Everybody said you was deadly
Guess you know you are because
Deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly
Always takes you by surprise

Its a sad situation
When yes it's true
I can say it baby
I'm through with you
Its over now
And in the past
Gonna find me a man
With a love that'll last
You know he's deadly
Everybody said you was deadly

Guess you know you always been
Deadly
Comes in every shape and size
Deadly
Finally made me realize

That I tried and tried
But you just couldn't get enough
And so you
Lied and lied and lied
And I will not be denied
I will not be denied
I will not be denied
