  Street~Legal session 4, Rundown Studios, Santa Monica Ca - 28.apr.1978, album version  

Do you love me or are you just extending good will?
Do you need me half as bad as you say or are you just feelin guilt?
I've burned before an' i know the score so you won't hear me complain
Will i be able to count on you or is your love in vain?

Are you so fast that you cannot see that i must have solitude?
When i am in darkness why do you intrude
Do you know my world, do you know my kind or must i explain
Will you let me be myself or is your love in vain?

Well i've been to the mountain an' i have been in the wind
I've been in an' out of happiness
I have dined with kings, i've been offered wings
An' i've never been too impressed.

Alright i'll take a chance i will fall in love with you
If i'm a fool you can have the night, you can have the morning too
Can you cook and sew, make flowers grow, do you understand my pain
Are you willing to risk it all or is your love in vain?
