Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad

Composer: Steinman
Baby we can talk all night
But that ain't getting us nowhere
I've told you everything I possibly can
Nothing left inside of me

I poured it on, and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I'm tired of words, and I'm too hoarse to shout
But you've been cold to me so long
I'm crying icicles instead of tears
And all I can do is keep on telling you

I want you (I want you)
I need you (I need you)
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
So don't be sad, two out of three ain't bad
Come on don't be sad (don't be sad)
'Cause two out of three ain't bad

I can't lie
I can't tell you that I'm something I'm not
No matter how I try
I'll never be able
To give you something
Something that I just haven't got

There was only one time I ever been in love
And that was so many years ago
And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away

Packed her bags and turned away
Packed her bags and turned away
And I can still hear her say
And she kept on telling me
Yeah she kept on telling me
You know
