Keepin' It To Myself

This song is by Average White Band and appears on the album AWB (1974).

Now and again it occurs to me
I'm giving away much more than I ought to be
Oh, yes I am
And today I got a letter
Telling me things that I better not believe
But I don't know if I can
But you're the last in a long line of mistakes I've made
I'm tired of giving my heart and soul to a masquerade
So I'm gonna be

Keepin' it to myself
Let it build up inside of me
Keepin' it to myself
Baby, I tried

Well it makes no difference
I always thought that it was planned
When you get everything a man has to give
You now you got to return it
But every time I build my dreams
Find that love is not all what it seems to be
And I keep getting burned
But from now on I'm gonna quit
Before I commit myself
To any woman I meet
And I'll get by without love for a while
And get into something else

Keepin' it to myself
Let it build on up inside
Keepin' it to myself
Baby, I tried
