Todd Rundgren - 'don't Tie My Hands' lyrics

BABY LET'S SWING
Laura, I saw you open in LA
There's something I gotta say
Laura, you know it's really been such a long, long time

And you know Laura, I knew you'd make it good someday
And you knew it anyway
Laura, I know that maybe this is the wrong, wrong time
But Laura where did that magic go
It's so hard, it's so cold down here
Did you have to leave me behind?
I wish that I could make it
But how I love to shuffle (how I love to shuffle)
Baby let's swing
Now I love to shuffle
Ever since I heard you sing (since I heard her sing)

Laura, I saw you in that magazine
You looked like a gypsy queen
Laura, I beat around the bush 'cause it's oh so hard
But you know Laura, it's not the best it's ever been
I think you know what I mean
I wish you'd take a look in your own back yard
To see that someone has seen it all
Seen you climb, seen you fall so low
If you have to leave it behind
I'll carry it on for ya, 'cause it's oh so hard
Baby let's swing
Now I love to shuffle
Ever since I heard you sing

THE LAST THING YOU SAID
So may people have heard me cry
Since that terrible day when you said goodbye
So many dark corners have heard me say
How the light has gone out since you went away
Everyone's heard of how you left me again
Everyone's heard about my so-called friend
They tell me I'm a fool, but I don't hear a word
'Cause the last thing you said was the last thing I heard
How many times I've tried to talk to my heart
But it won't even listen since you tore it apart
I have to tell myself there's only one thing to do
Try and find someone else and forget about you
I know she doesn't mean a thing in the world
I waste my hours with another girl
She says she loves me so but I don't hear a word
'Cause the last thing you said was the last thing I heard

DON'T TIE MY HANDS
Long-lost, gone
I can tell by the way you carry on
And it's now I see
After all of this time what it's done to me
Can't you see? I can't go free
If you make me watch you cry one more time

Once more I walk away, once more I hear you say
Once more please try to stay, once more I may
Don't tie my hands, don't lock that door
Don't make me stand for this love anymore
Please let me leave, don't start making that scene
Don't crush me in between

No one I wanted more
I wanted to love, to be mine
Now it turns out I have to say goodbye
And I don't see why
I should have to watch you cry one more time
