Can't Depend On Love, 1972 by Gordon Lightfoot

I spent most of my life outside in the driving rain
I was only trying to get by with some of life's amenities
Well nothing's free
I got more than I bargained for, now it's plain to see
I can't depend on love to defend me

It took most of my time to do what never was done
I was on the outside of an inside kind of love that now is gone
Come right or wrong
It was laid to rest that way, I hate to be unkind
Pretending is for strangers who don't know you

I spent most of my life outside in the driving rain
I was in some one-horse town just waiting for a plane to take me back
Now where's that at
I paid the price, well ain't that nice, knowing I'm so free
I can't depend on love to defend me
I got more than I bargained for, now it's plain to see
I can't depend on love to defend me
