Billy Dean - I'm Not Built That Way Lyrics

I am not a devil

I am not a saint
You can't tell if the wood is good
By looking at the paint
It's not that I don't love you
Some words are just hard for me to say
I wish I was a poet
But honey I'm not built that way

I know someone hurt you
But that's all in the past
He was one to hit and run
But I don't' work like that
I'm gonna take forever
To finish what we started here today
I just can't' lie about it
Honey I'm not built that way

I'm built to go the distance
Solid as a rock
I climb all my mountains to the top
I won't' run for cover
Even when our sunny skies turn gray
Honey I'm not built that way
Saying it is one thing proving it takes time
But the thought that I don't love you
Should never cross your mind

I'm built to go the distance
Solid as a rock
I climb all my mountains to the top
I won't' run for cover
Even when our sunny skies turn gray
Honey I'm not built that way
Saying it is one thing proving it takes time
But the thought that I don't love you
Should never cross your mind

Built that way
I'm not built that way
