Lyrics

Just four AM and your eyes haven't closed
Must be some things on your mind I suppose
God only knows
She lies so quiet and sleeps through the night
You don't spoil her dreams just to say she was right
After you fight
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
Put in your pocket and wait till the push comes to shove
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love

You want something wild after years you're so due
But just like a child you don't know what to do
It's up to you
Temptation comes and tells you to stray
Are you just scared or good when you stay
It's all the same
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
Put in your pocket and wait till the push comes to shove
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
Yeah the Don Juans run away, Walter Mitty just dreams all day
But neither are really my style

You want something wild after years you're so due
But just like a child you soon learn what to do
It's up to you
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
Put in your pocket and wait till the push comes to shove
When you've lived a little you don't turn your back on the tough love
Oh the tough love
