Oh, I'm drawn to you
Like a burnin' flame
But somebody's waitin'
That bears my name
Oh, Lord knows I'd love to love you
Cause you know I'm just a man
But I can't
Not from where I stand.

You see I made a promise
When I put on that rign
And I plan to kep it, babe
It's a sacred thing
Well, heaven knows I'm tempted
I hope you understand
That I can't
Not from where I stand.

[Repeat: x2]
Oh, from where I stand
There's a golden band
And I swear I couldn't stand
To lose it all
So, I better run
While I still can
Cause I can't, babe
Not from where I stand.

No I can't, not from where I stand
Yeah, not from where I stand
