    Stop in the name of love, before you break my heart.

    Baby baby i'm aware of where you go
    each time you leave my door
    i watch you walk down the street
    knowing your other love you'll meet
    but this time before you run to her leaving me all alone and hurt

    think it over( haven't i been good to you?)
    think it over( haven't i been sweet to you?)

    stop in the name of love before you break my heart
    stop in the name of love before you break my heart
    think it over
    think it over

    i known of your, your secluded nights
    i've even seen her maybee once or twice
    but is her sweet expression
    worth more then my love and affection?
    but this time before you leave my arms
    and rush off to her charm

    think it over(haven't i been good to you?)
    think it over(haven't i been sweet to you?)

    stop in the name of love before you break my heart
    stop in the name of love before you break my heart
    think it over
    think it over

    i've tried so hard, hard to be patient
    hoping you would stop this infactuation
    but each time you are together
    i'm so afraid of losing you for ever

    stop in the name of love before you break my heart(baby think it over)
    stop in the name of love (think it over baby)before you break my heart(oooh think it over baby)
