Take The Short Way Home

 You've been makin' up your mind
 And I can save you from the trouble
 that your heart is goin' through
 And I can tell you what your future's gonna be
 Maybe we can open up your eyes
 Baby, you can't leave me now
 There is lightning in the city
 Stranger than you ever saw
 Get back to your special lover
 And I won't ever turn on you or tell you
 You should tell me where you go
 Just take the short way home
 Baby, take care of yourself
 In this world of evil I can keep you to myself
 Take the short way home
 You'll be safe her by my side
 In this world of evil
 I can keep you satisfied
 And you can make it easy on yourself
 Some other love may call my name when you're away
 And I'll be gone
 There's no other who could ever love you more
 Keep talkin' to myself when I'm alone I don't want to be alone
 Crazy people in the shadows
 Love is only what you find
 Come back here and you'll discover
 There ain't nothing you been searchin' for
 I could not give you now if you were mine
 Just take the short way home
 Baby take care of yourself
 In this world of evil I can keep you to myself
 Take the short way home
 You'll be safe her by my side
 In this world of evil
 I can keep you satisfied
 Crazy people in the shadows
 Love is only what you find
 Come back here and you'll discover
 There ain't nothing you been searchin' for
 I could not give you now if you were mine
 Must take the short way home
 Baby take care of yourself
 In this world of evilI can keep you for myself
 Take the short way home
 You'll be safe her by my side
 In this world of evil
 I can keep you satisfied
 Take the short way home
 Baby take care of yourself
 In this world of evil I can keep you for myself
 Take the short way home
 You'll be safe her by my side
 In this world of evilI can keep you satisfied
