  TWO OUT OF THREE AIN'T BAD

Baby, we can talk all night
But that ain't getting us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There's nothing left inside of me

And maybe you can cry all night
But that'll never change the way that I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn't make leave here

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 need you
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad—'cause two out of three ain't bad
Now don't be sad—'cause two out of three ain't bad

You'll never find your gold on a sandy beach
You'll never drill for oil on a city street
I know you are looking for a ruby in a mountain of rocks
But there ain't no Coupe-de-Ville
Hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box

I can't lie
I can't tell you that I'm something I'm not
Now matter how I try
I'll never be able—to give you something
Something that I just haven't got

Well there's only one girl that I will ever love
And that was so many years ago
And though I know I'll never get her out of my heart
She never loved me back—ooh I know

Well, I remember how she left me on a stormy night
Oh, she kissed me and got out of our bed
And though I pleaded and I begged her not to walk out that door
She packed her bags and turned right away

And she kept on telling me
She kept on telling me
She kept on telling me

I want you, I need you
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad—'cause two out of three ain't bad
Now don't be sad—'cause two out of three ain't bad

I want you, I need you
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad—'cause two out of three ain't bad
Now don't be sad—'cause two out of three ain't bad

Baby we can talk all night
But that ain't getting us nowhere....
