I don't want to be your lover

Last night I heard you creeping
I was almost sleeping
When I heard you come home
You knew I loved you madly
And I would gladly
Do anything for you

You climbed the stairs to heaven
But you may never climb those steps again
You thought you'd be forgiven
But I was driven to make you understand

I don't want to be your lover
When there's another lover in your head
I don't want to be your lover
When there's another lover in your bed

Tell me how you could do it
Why put me through it
When you said you'd be true
You said that it was nothing
But it was something
And sometimes that's enough

So climb the stairs to heaven
But you may never climb those steps again
You thought you'd be forgiven
But I was driven to make you understand

I don't want to be your lover
When there's another lover in your head
I don't want to be your lover
When there's another lover in your bed

You climbed the stairs to heaven
But you may never climb those steps again
You thought you'd be forgiven
But I was driven to make you understand

I don't want to be your lover
When there's another lover in your head
I don't want to be your lover
When there's another lover in your bed
