George Jones — I Said All That To Say All This lyrics

Last night when I said it was gettin' colder
I thought you'd take the hint
Well, I wanted my arm around your shoulder
That's what I really meant.

When I asked if I could drive you home
I didn't want to be alone
We've been friends a long, long time
Oh, why can't you see what's on my mind.

I said all that to say all this
I want your touch and I need your kiss
Honey, if I even had half the nerve
I'd give in' and give you desert.

Every other thing that you do to me
You make my head spin and my knees go weak
I follow your love and I can't resist
I said all that to say all this.

--- Instrumental ---

Baby, I'm standing on the edge
All I need is a little push
But it's hard to speak my heart
So I keep beatin' around the bush.

When I said I need someone like you
Couldn't you see where it was leading too
Your the only one who can do it
Where I thought you'd see right through it.

I said all that to say all this
I want your touch and I need your kiss
Honey, if I even had half the nerve
I could even follow this urge

Every other thing that you do to me
You make my head spin and my knees go weak
I follow your love and I can't resist
I said all that to say all this.

I follow your love and I can't resist
I said all that to say all this...
