lyrics

The barroom lights still twinkle and shine
Just like they did when you were mine
But those days have come
And those days have passed

But the men here still wink and ask me to dance
And while we whirl whisper words of romance
They ask me, sweet baby
What's that sad look in your eyes?

Chorus:
I'm tired of being so strong
I want someone to carry me
Don't you betray me and decide
That you want to marry me
All I'm asking from you
Is for you to hold me
And when you realize that I'm leaving
Don't say she never told me

But things just don't seem to work out that way
They always come looking for more the next day
They're askin for something
That I just can't give

Some bide their time, convinced that I'll change
Some say, for a woman, that I act awful strange
But they don't understand me
And they never will

Chorus:
I'm tired of being so strong
I want someone to carry me
Don't you betray me and decide
That you want to marry me
All I'm asking from you
Is for you to hold me
And when you realize that I'm leaving
Don't say she never told me

There's only one man who has had my heart
And when it got broken I guess I got smart
I said I'll be damned
If I do that again

Chorus:
I'm tired of being so strong
I want someone to carry me
Don't you betray me and decide
That you want to marry me
All I'm asking from you
Is for you to hold me
And when you realize that I'm leaving
Don't say she never told me
Cause you know that I told you
