Little River Band - No Reins On Me Lyrics




Used to be, you and me, we had some understanding,
Easily, we could see each other's point of view,
But lately I find we've shifted in time, nothin' to say,
Just want no reins on me.

No reins on me, just to satisfy you,
Don't claim to be something different than you are,
It's plain to see why you do the things you do,
And now I want no reins on me.

Suddenly, I can see how much you used to use me,
eagerly, I thought I was free, under your control,
To break out and live, I need more than you can give,
And now I want no reins on me.

Everybody wants to put it on somebody else,
To carry on enjoying themselves (no reins, no reins on me)
We're caught in the pain, it's so insane (I want to reins ...)
It's anyone's game, I need no reins ....

Sad to see, you and me, we have no resolution,
One to one, it is said and done, way beyond control,
Our lies are our truth, possessive love and misspent youth,
And now I want no reins on me.

Just to satisfy you, don't claim to be something different than you are,
It's plain to see why you do the things you do,
And now I want no reins on me.

Little River Band No Reins On Me Comments
  1. Geoffrey Rodgers

    This should have been a big hit for LRB, it was a great song but in hindsight i am glad it wasn't a hit cause if it had been a hit, John Farnham may not have left the band to record his brilliant classic album Whispering Jack. And we wouldn't have gotten all those great songs and hits from the albums; Whispering Jack, Age Of Reason, Chain Reaction, Then Again ...etc

  2. R. L. Smith

    Excellent song by LRB, from the mid 1980s. Surprised this one didn't make it to the top-40! Wayne Nelson's voice is simply unmistakable!
