Rosanne Cash — Second To No One lyrics

SECOND TO NO ONE

(Rosanne Cash)

I don't want to be the sole survivor
I don't want to close it down
I don't want to know what goes on between you
Whenever I ain't around

I don't want to be the last to hear it
And I don't want to live apart
But I don't want to wear your diamond ring
If you won't give me your heart

I don't think you know how bad you treat me
But I can't live like a whore
She thinks she's got the key to your heart
Now I've got to wait by the door
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/rosanne-cash-second-to-no-one-lyrics.html ]
If I could only learn to make you love me
I'll make you love me like I love you
If I could give what I want to give you
I'd want to give you a heart that's true

I don't want to know how long you're leaving
And I don't want to know why
If I can't lie in your arms this evening
I'll just stay home and cry

I don't want to be second to no one
I don't want to let it be
I don't know what's going to happen tomorrow
But tonight you belong here with me

I don't know if this can last forever
Cause I don't know what I can stand
I can love you like a man should be loved
But I can't love half a man

If I could only learn to make you love me
I'd make you love me like I love you
If I could give you what I want to give you
I'd want to give you a heart that's true
