Lyrics

And I don't know you, you don't know me
I want to, can't you see?
It won't take long
It won't take long, girl, just you wait and see
And I don't know you, you don't know me, you can't run with me
Just wait and see, girl

And I can't see you, you can't see me
My reason is distance, your reason's your lover
It won't take long
It won't take long, girl, just you wait and see
And I can't see you, you can't see me, you can't run with me
Just wait and see. girl

I know I've been drinking, but what's this I'm thinking?
I'd like to be with you, hear me now
And I don't know you, you don't know me, you just wait and see
Now I see you, now I hear you, rips my soul apart
Have you no heart, Love?

Now I go to pieces, for I know so little
Each time I speak now, my language runs riot
I thought there was something, but now I know different
Thought of my self first, how cruel can one be?
