10000 Maniacs – I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You lyrics

[ Tom Waits ]



Well I hope that I don't fall in love with you
'Cause falling in love just makes me blue,
Well the music plays and you display your heart for me to see,
I had a beer and now I hear you calling out for me
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.

Well the room is crowded, people everywhere
And I wonder, should I offer you a chair?
Well if you sit down with this old clown, take that frown and break it,
Before the evening's gone away, I think that we could make it,
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me.

Well the night does funny things inside a man
These old tom-cat feelings you don't understand,
Well I turn around and look at you, you light a cigarette,
I wish I had the guts to bum one, but we've never met,
And I hope that I don't fall in love with you.

I can see that you are lonesome just like me, and it being late,
You'd like some some company,
Well I turn around and look at you, and you look back at me,
The guy you're with has up and split, the chair next to you's free,

And I hope that you don't fall in love with me.

Now it's closing time and the music's fading out
Last call for drinks, I'll have another stout.
Well I turn around to look for you, you're nowhere to be found,
I search the place for your lost face, guess I'll have another round

And I think that I just fell in love with you.
