LET’S NOT START

By Bree Leto and Charles Robert Lindholm 

I look into your eyes
and I see the flames
of passion burning
I know what you are yearning for

You want to light my fire
You think this attraction between us
is my heart’s desire
But eventually,
love would make a liar
out of us both

We could have 
a crazy love affair
with a beautiful start
but it wouldn’t go anywhere
it wouldn’t last –
there is no forever
in our future

We’ll only hurt each other
along the way 
So why delay the inevitable,
a doomed romance,
when it’s so plain to see,
I’m not good for you
and you’re not good for me

I know you are trying
to seduce me,  
tempt me to surrender,
but I’ve seen how this story ends,
we won’t even remain friends

So, let’s not start down this road
to heartache
’cause I’ve been there before
