Will you love me tomorrow
Like you love me now
Will you love me tomorrow
Like you love me now
When the flames of our flesh have stopped burning
And the fire of our love has cooled down

Too many times I've asked for too much
Baby, give me your love in return
Too many times I've asked for too much
Baby, give me your love in return
Give me your mind and your soul
Don't leave me with a love that burns

Don't treat me as your fool
'Cos my heart can't stand another lie
Please don't treat me as your fool
'Cos my heart can't stand another lie
And if you can't love me tomorrow
Just leave me in my room to cry

Please don't treat me as your fool
Please give me your love in return
Too many times I've asked for too much
Baby, give me your love in return
Give me your heart and your soul
Don't leave me with a love that burns
