Love's tempting me, but I won't fall for it this time
No I don't believe, though I admit I've towed the line
It always seems, this time will work out now
But then she leaves, just like she's done a hundred times before

Don't you be fooled, I know you think you're happy now
You'd best play it cool, now don't you ever let on how

You feel, that's when it starts downhill
You think it's real, just say "I won't" when she says "I will"

It's all part of the same conversation
I keep on having in my head
I'm dead set, then beset by reservations
It's white hot, then blue on blue, and all I see is red

You'd think I'd learn, but it's taken a lifetime
Ya know I've been burned, I've seen no light but I'm not blind
And so it goes, don't make the same mistakes
And no one knows, what doesn't bend will surely break


Love's tempting me, thought you and me were I and I
Now I finally see, that it's all just one big lie
I'll just up and leave, I'd just make a mess of this
Hard to believe, that there was once a time I did
