Lyrics
You were on your own I was on the road
You were awful lonesome I was awful cold
You wanted love songs but that"s not enough
So how long must we punish each other
For the sin of falling in love

You were on the phone I was on the floor
And the boy was staring out the kitchen door
He hears our fighting and he takes it rough
So how long must we punish each other
For the sin of falling in love

Well there"s a whole lot worse that a man can do
There"s greater crimes for women too
Than to give the holy power of love a place to stand
Now we"re looking back through a cycle whoa
There"s a boy with a stack of reasons to know
Why we can"t forgive each other a Woman and Man

You were in the air I was in the sea
Boy was in the basket with friends on the beach
It don"t take much asking to receive that stuff
So how long must we punish each other
For the sin of falling in love
Whoa how long must we punish each other
For the sin of falling in love
