By David Allan Coe & Skeet Petty
Dedicated to Meme Broussard Coe for love and devotion through it all, To Cherie for the hospital care and Nancy for cooking my meals, and Debbie for leaving and giving me a chance to be myself again.
IF I EVER NEEDED LOVE, I NEED IT NOW
HONEY, WHY CANT YOU SEE ME THROUGH ME
WHEN I PRETEND THAT IM TO STRONG TO BEND?
THIS HEART CAN MEND A LOVER OR A FRIEND
STOP ACTING LIKE YOU NEVER KNEW ME.
HOW YOU FANTASIZE, TELLING LITTLE LIES
FAIRY TALES ARE ALL YOU EVER SEE
DON’T YOU REALIZE HOW YOU HYPNOTIZE
ANYONE WHO’S FOOL ENOUGH TO LOOK BACK INTO YOUR EYES?
AND FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU
IF I EVER WANTED SOMEONE BABE I NEED YOU NOW
PLEASE DON’T PLACE YOUR SELF ABOVE ME
JUST OUT OF REACH WHEN YOU COULD LEARN TO TEACH
ME TO BEGIN LOVING YOU AGAIN
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?
