I'm giving you my heart and my soul
I'm giving you more than you'll ever know
I'm giving you just about everything I can
Can't you see that I'm just only one man

I took you out to the picture show
Then I took you walkin' outdoors
I walked you up and down the block
And I warned you baby this has got to stop

[Chorus]
This has got to stop, you're way over the top
Pack my things and walk, we can't even talk
This has got to stop, I just had enough
I'm gonna call your bluff, walk you one more lap

And I watched you watching me as I watched you walk away from me
And I went off to that far country
I took a plane out to that Newfoundland
And you said to me that you didn't understand

[Chorus]

Well I came back home and I burnt our house down
I watched it crumble to the ground
Oh it caved in like a piece of balsa wood
I turned to you and said baby, this is just no good

And I worked and I tried to build it all back up again
The day that you told me that you had really changed
Then you knocked down all my castles in the sand
Then I said baby, I know now just where we stand

[Chorus]

This has got to stop
Stop, stop I've had enough
I'm gonna call your bluff
Stop, stop, stop
Yes I've got to stop
