ASHFORD & SIMPSON lyrics - The Debt Is Settled

ASHFORD & SIMPSON
"The Debt Is Settled"
(Nick Ashford / Valerie Simpson)

[Chorus:]
Truly I loved, I have
Truly I felt honestly glad
(But) This time the debt is settled in my mind

[Chorus]

Just to ease the way I feel
You put the sugar on the pill
And if it ain't just like you
To use some tenderness in all you do
I want you to wait
Let's get one thing straight
You I could never hate

[Chorus]

Just to ease the way I feel
You put the sugar on the pill
And if it ain't just like you
To use some tenderness in all you do
I want you to wait
Let's get one thing straight
You I could never hate

I loved, if I never get a chance again
I loved, I know I had more than a friend
I loved, walk away, you're free to go
I loved, but there's one thing I want you to know

This time the debt is settled in my mind
This time the debt is settled in my mind
