No You Wont


Oh no you wont,
Be the one to have me weak in the knees...
To prove to people you know,
I will do as 'you' please.

And you wont,
Get my nose to open up real wide...
To empty out my brains to leave nothing inside.
Because...
I've been there before with love to share.
Only to be left alone with space to spare.
And looking very pitiful as if no one cared.
With tears dripping down my eyes I can not hide.

You wont,
Be the one to have me hypnotized...
With a bumping into walls not to realize,
Love...
Got you and gossips to ear hop.

Not again to get my heart,
To wound and bleed.
Because somebody took the opportunity,
To do 'that' to me.

No you wont,
Be the one to have me hypnotized...
With a bumping into walls not to realize,
Somebody came along to squeeze all my love to leave.

'Hi.
You have such beautiful eyes.
I bet you hear that all the time,
Don't you? '

Well...
Not 'all' the time.

'I can look into them for the rest of my life.'

Will you stop that.
But...
Seriously.
You think so?

'It's always the good ones that are taken.'

Let's get back to my eyes.
What did you say about them?
