    Lyrics

    (Johnny Cunningham)

    It's a crime the way you treat me
    Night time's the only time you meet me
    And hotel rooms with shades pulled down
    Morning comes and you're never around
    And it's a sin the way I love you
    But my friend, I can't rise above you
    Lord knows it's killing me
    But that's the way it's gotta be.

    And I keep taking what I can get, regretting the day we me
    (Just) Letting you do your thing, in love's name
    (And) I keep holding on to you, there's nothing left for me to do
    Guess I should find somebody new, and break these chains
    But I'm caught in the wheels, of love's cheating game.

    Your daughter's only three, too young to know 'bout you and me
    Ah her mama needs you, too, just the way I need you
    And love, I should not complain
    For I'm just as much to blame
    I've known all along, what we've been doing's wrong.

    And I keep taking what I can get, regretting the day we me
    (Just) Letting you do your thing, in love's name
    (And) I keep holding on to you, there's nothing left for me to do
    Guess I should find somebody new, and break these chains
    But I'm caught in the wheels, of love's cheating game.

    And as the wheels of love keep turning
    Higher the fire is burning
    I'm bitter, Lord, but your love's so sweet
    I know we're heading down a one way street.

    And I keep taking what I can get, regretting the day we me
    (Just) Letting you do your thing, in love's name
    (And) I keep holding on to you, there's nothing left for me to do
    Guess I should find somebody new, and break these chains
    But I'm caught in the wheels, of love's cheating game...
