The Ties That Bind

The Ties That Bind

You been hurt and you're all cried out you say
You walk down the street pushing people outta your way
You packed your bags and all alone you wanna ride
You don't want nothing, don't need no one by your side
You're walking tough, baby, but you're walking blind

To the ties that bind
The ties that bind
Now you can't break the ties that bind

A cheap romance, you say it's all just just a crush
You don't want nothing that anybody can touch
You're so afraid of being somebody's fool
Not walking tough, baby, not walking cool
You walk cool, but darling can you walk the line

And face the ties that bind
The ties that bind
Now you can't break the ties that bind

Whoa whoa I
I'd rather feel the hurt inside, yes I would darling than know
Than know the emptiness your heart must hide
Yes I would darling, yes I would darling, yes I would baby

Hey!

Yeah!

You sit and wonder just who's gonna stop the rain
Who'll ease the sadness, who's gonna quiet your pain
It's a long dark highway and a thin white line
Connecting baby your heart to mine
We're running now but darling we will stand in time

To face the ties that bind
The ties that bind
Now you can't break the ties that bind
You can't forsake the ties that bind
Whoa whoa whoa, whoa whoa whoa
