In my mind I've made love to you often
But only in my mind can it be so
'Cause there's someone at home that's countin' on me
And if I did, I'm sure that he would know

Yes, he would know, yes, he could tell
For, he has loved me long enough to know me very well
And if I lied, he'd see it in my eyes
I know my guilt would show and he would know

But I must admit you're someone very special
And it would be so easy to let go
Makin' love to you could be so easy
But if I did, I'm sure that he would know

Yes, he would know, yes, he could tell
For, he has loved me long enough to know me very well
And if I lied, he'd see it in my eyes
I know my guilt would show and he would know

My conscience just won't let me make love to you
I know it would be sweet, but I just can't
When I go home to him I must be able
To look him in the eyes and say I ain't

'Cause he would know, yes, he could tell
For, he has loved me long enough to know me very well
And if I lied, he'd see it in my eyes
I know my guilt would show and he would know
He would know
