Hearts break too fast when they're sentimental
Won't stay won't last when it's love at first sight
So why are my convictions blinded by your spotlight

Can't breathe can't sleep with some medication
I'll kiss goodbye to my reservations
I know there's other fish out in the sea
Not for me
I want you

If I can't have you then I don't want anyone
If I can't have you then all the damage has been done baby
You can break these rules if you wanna have some fun
Think of all the love that you will lose if I can't have you

Heartbeat cold sweat thoughts slipping under
Can't fight no threat cause there's just no use
One look, no hesitation
I'm slipping into you

Forgive these eyes these lips you're tasting
No time to waste on an invitation
My shame my self control has suffered enough
Everybody wants to be loved

If I can't have you then I don't want anyone
If I can't have you then all the damage has been done baby
You can break these rules if you wanna have some fun
Think of all the love that you will lose if I can't have you

I haven't seen the best that love has had to offer
They say perfection's always right around the corner
Could be true
But if I can't have you...

If I can't have you then I don't want anyone
If I can't have you then all the damage has been done baby
You can break these rules if you wanna have some fun
Think of all the love that you will lose if I can't have you

    Every word fits my situation... My husband i've come to find out is a drug addict, we got married too soon the 'love @ first sight' kind of thing & now, i don't feel like he ever even wants me near him... But my brother-in-law & i have been hanging out alot lately, we have more in common, he cares about how i'm doing, if i've had food to eat, or if i'm cold at night (meaning my b-i-l covered me up once with a blanket as i slept on the couch. ) i'm starting to really care about my brother-in-law in a different way than i should, but if the 'rules' are set aside, could we find love?

    I really like this guy and he has a girlfriend and my best friend likes him. It has to do with a girl liking a guy and being willing to do anything to get him. (i am, to kelly! )

    If she can't have him, well she doesn't want anyone else. If he breaks her heart he better think of the love he'll lose... Alot.
