Don't Be Careless Love Lyrics - Paul McCartney

Review The Song (0)



By Paul McCartney and Declan MacManus

BURN THE MIDNIGHT LAMP
DOWN UNTIL THE DAWN,
I'LL KEEP WATCH UNTIL I'M SURE YOUR COMING HOME.
SHADOWS PLAY AND FLICKER ON THE BEDROOM WALL
THEY TURN INTO A BAD DREAM OVERNIGHT,
SOMETHING COULD BE TERRIBLY WRONG.
DON'T BE CARELESS, LOVE,
DON'T BE CARELESS, LOVE,
DON'T BE, DON'T BE CARELESS.

IN MY DREAM YOU'RE RUNNING NOWHERE,
EV'RY STEP YOU'VE TAKEN TURNS TO GLUE,
WALKING DOWN A SPIRAL STAIRCASE,
FALLING THROUGH, FALLING THROUGH,
DON'T BE CARELESS, LOVE,
BE CARELESS, LOVE.

THE LAMP BURNS DOWN AND OUT
I'M GETTING PRETTY TIRED OF THIS.
I FEEL SO BAD, SOMETHING MIGHT BE GOING AMISS.
I WON'T BE THERE SO LOOK OUT FOR YOURSELF,
YOU'RE GETTING IN DEEP WHATEVER YOU DO,
DON'T LET ME GO BACK TO SLEEP.
DON'T BE CARELESS, LOVE, UH,
DON'T BE CARELESS, LOVE,
DON'T BE, DON'T BE CARELESS.

SAW YOUR FACE IN THE MORNING PAPER,
SAW YOUR BODY ROLLED UP IN A RUG.
CHOPPED UP INTO TWO LITTLE PIECES BY SOME THUG.
DON'T BE CARELESS, LOVE,
BE CARELESS, LOVE.

BUT IN THE MORNING LIGHT
WHEN I WAKE UP AGAIN,
YOU'RE BY MY SIDE AND THAT'S THE WAY IT'S ALWAYS BEEN.
BUT IN THE DARK,
YOUR MIND PLAYS FUNNY TRICKS ON YOU,
YOUR MIND PLAYS FUNNY TRICKS ON YOU,
YOUR MIND PLAYS FUNNY TRICKS ON YOU.

DON'T BE CARELESS, LOVE.
