I meant every word of every promise I made to you
But I'm a mess in my heart and now we're both confused

Told you not to get too close
Now look what you made me do
You should try to save yourself
I'll only end up hurting you
Can you hear me?

I just got to step back
I don't wanna keep falling
Don't wanna trade with you heart
Cos you can't afford it
Don't wanna give up
Find it hard to keep going
Know deep inside that the love between us is growing
I can't continue, just gotta shut it down
You can't keep playing with fire
I'm only gonna lead you to temptation
That's where I'm coming from
(Uh oh that's where I'm coming from) x4

Had the time of my life
Back then when we were cool
Somehow we got in too deep
All the collision costs I knew
Didn't wanna give too much
But I couldnt stop myself
Knew that it would end in tears
I'm not like everybody else
You can't save me

I just got to step back
I don't wanna keep falling
Don't wanna trade with you heart
Cos you can't afford it
Don't wanna give up
Find it hard to keep going
Know deep inside that the love between us is growing
I can't continue, just gotta shut it down
You can't keep playing with fire
I'm only gonna lead you to temptation
That's where I'm coming from

You don't wanna play with me girl
I don't want the tears to run
Only gonna break your heart girl
I can never be the one

I just got to step back
I don't wanna keep falling
Don't wanna trade with you heart
Cos you can't afford it
Don't wanna give up
Find it hard to keep going
Know deep inside that the love between us is growing
I can't continue, just gotta shut it down
You can't keep playing with fire
I'm only gonna lead you to temptation
That's where I'm coming from
Uh oh said that's where I'm coming from
(Uh oh that's where I'm coming from) x3
(That's where I'm coming from) x3

    i wish all boys would sing this to girls. i mean how sweet for a boy to tell a girl to stay away because he knows he'll hurt her. obviously being a girl means she wont listen to him and end up risking it anyways.
