​Borrowed Love

This song is by Dwight Yoakam and appears on the album In Others' Words (2003).

Dwight Yoakam and Earl Scruggs

At every glance, you steal from me
I catch your eyes still offering
You've got desire bought with deceit
'Cause borrowed love ain't never free.

--- Instrumental ---

I vainly swear in my starved mind
To crave your look only one more time
And pray not to reap what we might sow
If borrowed love should start to grow.

--- Instrumental ---

Borrowed love, not yours for givin'
Borrowed love, not mine to seek
Borrowed love, this road we're takin'
Toward one another's awful steep.

Forgiveness for what passion wreaks
Bears a hurtful cost that don't come cheap
It's wages paid with misery
'Cause borrowed love ain't never free.

--- Instrumental ---

Borrowed love, not yours for givin'
Borrowed love, not mine to seek
Borrowed love, this road we're takin'
Toward one another's awful steep.

At every glance, you steal from me
I catch your eyes still offering
L got desire bought with deceit
'Cause borrowed love ain't never free...
