​Spreading My Love Around

This song is by The Voltage Brothers and appears on the album The Volt Age (1986).

I can't tell no lies
When I look into your eyes
When I see you lying there in your bed alone
I know something in your heart is going wrong

And I know you've been crying again
I'm a lover that you don't understand
And it hurts you 'cause I can't settle down
Instead I'm spreading my love around

I guess it's just no good (just no good)
I can't half the things I should (no matter how hard I try)
But if I change now I don't think I could carry on
'Cause I've been on my own so very long

And I know what it's doing to you
But I can't help it, baby, what I'm putting you through
Just another sleepless night while I'm out on the town
Spreading my love around

I know what it's doing to you
I can't help it, baby, what I'm putting you through
Just another sleepless night while I'm out on the town
Spreading my love around

Gentle thoughts running through my mind
Your sweet voice whispering in my ear (I love you, I love you)
After times when we chased the wine
Love was new, the skies were clear

But all of that's changing now (I don't want you to go)
You need to leave but you don't know how (I know I'll always love you)
Just slip away without a sound
While I'm spreading my love around

I'm just spreading my love around
I can't help it. baby

I can't tell no lies
Is it really over?
I look into your eyes
Are you telling me it's over?
