The Tie That Binds

This song is by Levon Helm and appears on the album Levon Helm & The RCO All-Stars (1977).

Last night I slept with an open eye
As I whispered on the phone
The tears you cry, I just disappear
And then I wish you was all alone

You thought I was sleeping
But I know you were sleazy
And you know you can't keep
That new secret from me

Let's not break the tie that binds
Let's not lose our piece of mind
You know that I really love you darling
But you're just too much to deal with at this time

You didn't have the nerve to tell me
That you just didn't love me
I assumed you'd rather pass and play
So darling evidently

You thought I was sleeping
But I know you been sleazing
And you know you can't keep
That new secret from me

Let's not break the tie that binds
Let's not lose our piece of mind
You know that I really love you darling
But I just can't seem to deal with you at this time

Your ?? has been at you a long long time
And I couldn't believe my ears
I nearly cried when you said to me
How much you needed me here

You thought I was sleeping
But I know you were sleazing
And you know you can't keep
That new secret from me

Let's not break the tie that binds
Let's not lose our piece of mind
You know that I really love you darling
But you're just too much to deal with at this time
