I have tried to do my best to avoid you
‘Cause I know you’re not the kind of girl for me.
You’re breaking hearts left and right when you want to,
And it didn’t take too much for me to see.
Someone like you could take someone like me,
Turn me inside out, leaving me so blue.
For the rest of my life I will try to recall
Someone like me doesn’t need someone like you.
Every time you walk by I just watch you,
Even though I know you’re not my kind.
I’ve seen you lead your loves around like a puppy,
And I’m so glad I’ve got it straight in my mind.
I must admit that I do find you attractive,
But in my heart, I know that it’s not right,
And if I ever give in to your affections,
I know that you’ll break my heart overnight.
