or
Gladys Knight & the Pips

Time is all important to everything
It seems to be an ongoing thing
When you're dealing with pain
Love and the fact that you've lost it

When I met you, I was introduced to love and
After a period of time I came to be friends with pain
I've dealt with these emotions and I hope that I've come through
So if you don't mind

Walk softly when you walk by me
‘Cause my heart is still, don't shake it up
Now that I've cried my love to sleep
(Cried my love to sleep)
Don’t wake it up, don't wake it up
(Don't wake it up)

Now that I've cried my love to sleep
(Cried my love to sleep)
Don’t wake it up, don't wake it up
(Don't wake it up, ooh)

If I seem distant and reserved when we meet
Don’t take the time to ask me, why
‘Cause it's bad enough that I've lost you
Ohh, don't make it rough, ohh, just say hello and goodbye

Tip toe when you pass by me
‘Cause my heart is still, don't shake it up
Now that I've cried my love to sleep
(Cried my love to sleep)
Don’t wake it up, ooh, don't wake it up
(Don't wake it up)

Yeah, I just cried my love to sleep
(Cried my love to sleep)
Ooh, don’t wake it up, don't wake it up
(Don't wake it up, ooh)

I fall apart each time I look in your eyes
Remembering things I should forget
Ooh, my love's a spark but it could burst into flames
‘Cause I'm not over you yet

Walk softly when you walk by me
Ooh, my heart is still, don't shake it up
Now that I've cried my love to sleep
(Cried my love to sleep)
Ooh, don’t shake it up, don't wake it up
(Don't wake it up)

Ooh, baby, now that I've cried my love to sleep
(Cried my love to sleep)
Don’t wake it up, don't wake it up, yeah
(Don't wake it up)

(Now that I've cried my love to sleep)
I've cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, ooh, don't wake it up
(Now that I've cried my love to sleep)
Yeah, I just cried my love to sleep
Don’t wake it up, please, don't wake it up
