She only wanted to be close to me To give me the love she knew some day I'd need But I kept saying girl you're wrong, go home She said I've no right to tell her how life should be Especially when the only one she ever cared about in life was me But she agreed to go along with my final word As fate would have life come around My world started tumbling down I lost my family, my friends and job And set free the only one who stuck with me from the start She only wanted to be close to me To give me the love she knew some day I'd need But I kept saying girl you're wrong, go home She only wanted to be close to me To give me the love she knew some day I'd need But I kept saying girl you're wrong, go home Go home baby, you better go home right now Go home, little girl you better go home ...
