Why does it take so much
For me not to see you
To turn away
Then you look at me and shivers rush down my spine
And I fear your words so I escape before you can speak
The law of attraction is a cruel one
Sometimes we long for those we cannot allow ourselves to have
And why do you look at me like that
When you know as well as me that this could never last
Longer than a heartbeat?
And why do I look for you wherever I go
And dare not look at you when I find you
For fear of self-betrayal?
