Joe Diffie – So Help Me Girl Lyrics

[Verse 1: Joe Diffie]
You could’ve kissed me, like this wasn’t gonna last
Kept me from saying something I’ll never take back
You could have held me like there was no chance
Of me waking up where I am
You could have stopped short of every dream I’ve ever had

[Chorus: Joe Diffie]
So help me girl
You’ve gone too far
It’s way too late
To save my heart
The way it feels
Each time we touch
I know I’ve never been so loved
And I can’t help myself
So help me girl

[Verse 2: Joe Diffie]
You had to be there when that old sun came up
Making last night feel like a vision of things yet to come
You just had to hold me like nobody else
Now look what you’ve gone and done
You had to love me ’til I just can’t get enough

[Chorus: Joe Diffie]
So help me girl
You’ve gone too far
It’s way too late
To save my heart
The way it feels
Each time we touch
I know I’ve never been so loved
And I can’t help myself
So help me girl

[Chorus: Joe Diffie]
So help me girl
You’ve gone too far
It’s way too late
To save my heart
The way it feels
Each time we touch
I know I’ve never been so loved
And I can’t help myself
So help me girl

[Outro: Joe Diffie]
And I can’t help myself, so help me girl
