Baby don’t look at me like that,
For when you do
My heart suddenly stops,
Forgets to beat,
And I lose myself
In an overwhelming wave of you.
Baby don’t gaze into my eyes the way you do;
For every time our eyes meet,
The rest of the world disappears.
And i need to stay in control,
I need to stay away from you.
Baby don’t tease me like this,
Don’t make me drown in an ocean of you.
For I will never make it back,
If you pull me towards you,
I will go down and vanish,
And be swallowed whole,
In the bottomless pit of love unrequited.
And then one day i will die,
A lonely death,
With you in my last thoughts,
Thinking about the could-have-beens,
Lamenting the didn’t do’s;
And yearning still,
For you to lose your heart to me.
So don’t pretend to fall into me,
Don’t fool me with your games,
Don’t have me break my heart into pieces,
Don’t look into me that way you do.
