Hey look what you've done
Ain't cha ever going to help me
'Cause now your love's the only one
I tried so hard to break it

Now that I'm loving you
1200 miles is a long long way
And my loves gonna grow
Every inch of the way

But I didn't mean to love you
I only meant to see
How far you'd go
And I didn't mean to love you
I tried to leave ya
And my heart said no
Oh no

Hey what can I say
You know I didn't mean to fall for you

Show me, show me, show me
What can I do
I don't even know
If you're love is true

But I know this
No matter how much I want to try
I'll never stop loving you
I need you
Though you're just 17
And my loves gonna grow every night every day

But I didn't mean to love you
I only meant to see
How far you'd go
And I didn't mean to love you
I tried to leave ya
And my heart said no
Oh no
