Down the Backstairs of My Life - Yvonne Elliman, Mercury, Eric lyrics

So I won't waste your time and I'll keep this short
I've bound my emotions 'cause I can't afford to be wrong

I know we've talked about being good friends
So we've been real careful of the signals we've sent
But all of your glances, they came and they went to my head

And I'm not a man to throw words to the wind
When I said I loved you that's what I meant
And I plan to show you if it takes me the rest of my life
The rest of my life, rest of my life

I don't want to rush this 'cause my greatest fear
Is taking for granted what's taken us years
To build from the ground up with all of the tears that we've cried

We've taken our time and for this I'm so glad
Now we can be sure that this moment will last
We've traveled a road of mistakes in our past to get here

So I'm not about to throw words to the wind
When I said I loved you that's what I meant
And I'm going to show you if it takes me the rest of my life
The rest of my life, the rest of my life

I'm not a man to throw words to the wind
When I said I loved you, well that's what I meant
I plan to show you if it takes me, the rest of my life

So I won't waste your time and I'll keep this short
I've bound my emotions 'cause I can't afford to be wrong
