Can I share this with you? Baby you know imagination is really funny Sometimes it's very hard to do, it's impossible Many nights and days I've, I've tried to imagine What it would be like to love you, I've even tried to imagine what you would look like Being loved, and I, I, I can't do it I'm trying to do what a gentleman would do Trying to be patient and tolerant All the things that a man is supposed to be but I just wanted you to know very honestly That I'm very anxious to be with you
It's getting harder all the time, Just to keep myself from wanting you Harder every day for me to stay away Knowing girl without your loving I ain't worth one dime It's getting harder, harder all the time All the time, it's getting hard every night Yes to keep my hands from touching you Oh Darling, once I do and I hear you sigh, I might as well kiss my poor heart goodbye Ain't it just a crime, it's getting harder, harder all the time All the time.
There's no fighting what I feel, Though God knows I've tried. Tried to hold back my love for you Is like trying to hold back the tide. It's getting harder, harder, harder all the time I can't stop needing you. Harder every day for me to find a way to keep myself From the tenderness of your lips touching mine. It's getting harder, harder all the time All the time. I ain't worth a dime, it's getting harder, harder all the time Harder, harder all the time.
