Lyrics

We’re caught in a trap

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Why can’t you see

What you’re doing to me

When you don’t believe a word I say?

We can’t go on together

With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)

And we can’t build our dreams

On suspicious minds

So if an old friend I know

Stops by to say hello

Would I still see suspicion in your eyes?

Here we go again

Asking where I’ve been

You can’t see the tears are real, I’m crying

(Yes I’m crying)

We can’t go on together

With suspicious minds (suspicious minds)

And we can’t build our dreams

On suspicious minds

Oh, let our love survive

I’ll dry the tears from your eyes

Let’s don’t let a good thing die

When honey, you know I’ve never lied to you

Mmm, yeah, yeah

We’re caught in a trap

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Why can’t you see

What you’re doing to me

When you don’t believe a word I say?

Well, don’t you know I’m caught in a trap?

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don’t you know I’m caught in a trap?

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don’t you know I’m caught in a trap?

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don’t you know I’m caught in a trap?

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don’t you know I’m caught in a trap?

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don’t you know I’m caught in a trap?

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much, baby

Well, don’t you know I’m caught in a trap?
