Number Thirty Four

I Shouldn’t...
I should not stand so close to you
The scent of you gets me high
I shouldn’t see your face every night
When I close my eyes
I try to block it out
I try not to hear your sweet voice
I know I shouldn’t love you
But it seems I have no choice

I know I know
All the things I shouldn’t do
I know I know
But I can’t help but love you

I know I shouldn’t dream of you
Lying warm and tan beneath the sun
I shouldn’t think of us
Running to each other’s arms and having fun
I shouldn’t think of kissing you
From the top of your head to the small of your back
I shouldn’t think of us running away
Going far away and never coming back

But I know I know
All the things I shouldn’t do
I know I know
But I can’t help but love you

Now my hearts ticking like a bomb in a birdcage
I need to leave before someone gets hurt
But every time you and I are in the same place
I don’t know how to say the words

I shouldn’t think of your fingertips on my skin
I shouldn’t think of music playing and us swaying in the wind
I shouldn’t think of kissing those lips
Something I’d never ever forget
If it’s meant to be it will find a way
Everybody tells me that
I gotta try to shake these blues
I know I shouldn’t love you
I know I shouldn’t love you
But I do
But I do
