Kris Kristofferson

Half a Love

 

I’ve known so long what’s going on

Behind your smiling eye

But I don’t leave ‘cause all my pride is gone

It’s not that you’re deceiving me

With all your pretty lies

Baby, half a love is better than none

 

You don’t know what it means to live on dreams

You know have died

Or share love you don’t dare to leave alone

But I have found my pride has drowned

In tears I had to hide

And baby, half a love is better than none

 

Half the time I know that I should leave

But I just can’t convince myself to go

‘Cause I know

When passion’s flame has died in shame

You’ll find your way back home

And baby, half a love is better than non
