Please don't ask me
What am I thinkin' It's about you.
Please don't ask me,
I never can see you what can I do?

My first impulse is to run to your side
My heart's not free and so I must hide
Please don't ask me
What I'm gonna say to you.

I toss and turn, can't sleep at night
It's worrying me
I go to bed, turn out the light
But your face I see...

It only hurts the more I pretend
That we could ever be more than friends
Please don't ask me
Why I'm so in love with you.

CHORUS
You could easily make me happy
That I know...
But I'll try my best
To never tell you so.

I will sing to you my love songs
And pretend...
And I'll keep the secret
Right down to the end.

Please don't ask me
Why I'm not talkin' I just can't explain
And please don't ask me
Why I go walkin' out in the rain.

I could not live the lie it would take
To have you near would be a mistake
Please don't ask me
Why I'm still in love with you...

No... Please don't ask me...

    I believe it's a classic tale of one person barred from falling in love with another because he or she is already committed to someone, so restraint is exercised so as not to let the feelings show. Loving someone albeit from afar.
