Marvin Hamlisch / Carole Bayer Sager 1977
as rec by Carmen McRae
also rec by Carole Bayer Sager '77
Can't take no more of your sweet alibis,
I've had my fill of your sweet alibis,
when I look in your eyes
It's driving me crazy!
Four in the mornin', and I hear you comin' in,
Trying to pretend I don't know where you've been.
How could the fire suddenly go bad,
Or am I losing something I never had?
Each night I lay so cold in your arms,
Tellin' myself, "Used to love me!";
And every day gets harder to hide,
Something has died
And it's driving me crazy!
Ooh, it's drivin' me crazy!
Yeah, driving me crazy!
And though I know I'd be better alone,
I just can't let go of the best love I've known;
But could I live without your sweet alibis?
Don't look in my eyes,
You're drivin' me crazy!
Ooh-ooh, you're drivin' me crazy!
Yeah yeah, you're drivin' me crazy!
