From the recording Don't Make Me Fall
Old habits die hard
Poison in my pleasure
I fell head first into your abyss
I shielded my eyes with my own 2 hands.
So I couldn't see you
Wouldn't feel how I felt
I shut down every emotion I thought I had
But nostalgia could jump start a failed romance.
Don't make me fall in love
Don’t make me fall in love
Don't make me fall in love with you
All over again and again.
Oh, the weapons you chose
Old love letters I wrote
You waved them back and forth in front of my red face
Saying how could this man not love me anymore
My voice on the page
Crumpled up in your fist
You fished them out of the trash just to throw ‘em right back
Oh baby, you’re impossible to ignore.
Like a polka needs a dot
Like a tick needs a tock
Like the fella that sits at the bar till the lights come on
There’s no stopping that sexual desire.
Love monster in a box
With you riding on top
You wear your heart on your sleeve
You’re so stubborn about me
There’s no stopping your passionate fire.
