Show Me, Don't Tell Me

(Pat Robinson, Bonny Moon)



I've been let down in the past
Promised tomorrow, but tomorrow didn't last

I listened when "I love you" was whispered in my ear
And every time I heard what I wanted to hear

I like to think that lovers mean it when they say it
But simple words can be so complicated

CHORUS
Show me, don't tell me
Love me with your eyes
Let me feel the fire burning deep inside
Hold me so close, that I'll know you'll never leave
Show me, don't tell me

Show me, don't tell me
Every time we kiss
Let me feel your sweetness linger on my lips
Touch me with the tenderness that I need
Show me, don't tell me
Make me believe

Too trusting I'm just that way
Don't want to make the same mistakes I've already made

I've learned from experience no one is to blame
When it comes to where you're coming from, we're not all the same

I like to think that lovers mean it when they say it
But simple words can be so complicated

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Somewhere in the darkness two hearts are in heaven
Reaching for the stars above
Somewhere in the darkness could be the beginning
Of true and everlasting love
