Lyrics

You can swim with the tide, you can make like a stone
And just wait for the water to carry you home
You can love who you like but you’ve been fairly warned:
Where there’s lightning there’s likely a storm

You can fight for your livin’, you can live for your sins
It’s nobody’s business what business you’re in
You can do as you please, even try to forget
That nothing kills quite like regret

But you can’t trust a man with a love song
You don’t know how many lips that tune’s been on
And God knows what he’ll do with it when you are gone
No, you can’t trust a man with a love song

You’re allowed to have your misgivings before
You’ve got it all figured out and what’s more
You can loose your way and still get where you’re goin’
You can hurt those you love without knowin’

You can hide in the hedge, you can stand on the fence
Go ahead and dream a dream that don’t make any sense
You can go out tonight and come back in the morn
And knock ‘til your knuckles are sore

But you can’t trust a man with a love song
You don’t know how many lips that tune’s been on
He’ll just change the words once you’re singin’ along
That’s why you can’t trust a man with a love song
