Paul Heaton – Proceed With Care lyrics

Don't be scared
Of conversations that you've overheard
Yes it's true
The first nights just a cryptic clue
Don't deny
Your first tastes worth a second try
Kisses sweet
Us underfed need occasional treat

Proceed with care
If you met him when his mates were there
Try to take five
If you met him in a late night dive
Go with the flow
If he's the one to make your fire glow
But just say no
If he's got two fires on the go

But the treat we deserve well it don't come cheap
Do we love at first sight or cross over the street
If we cross then we're just one of the weak
Or we're locked in a marriage too petrified to speak

Yes it's hard
But you've got to get him showing his cards
Like before
It just left us facing the floor
Makes more sense
To be ahead of the consequence
Does seem hard
But you can't let him lower your guard

So it looks like he's not gonna lose that appeal
He's passed all the tests and it looks as though this time it's real
It's amazing just what the first fight can reveal
Cause on the edge of his lips is Heel! Girl Heel!

Don't be afraid
Of the enemies you've made
Just take care
Of the folks who got you there
Return the rings
And all the presents he brings
It's a raw deal
He wants you to sign and seal

Proceed with care
If you met him when his mates were there
Try to take five
If you met him in a late night dive
Go with the flow
If he's the one to make your fire glow
But just say no
If he's got two fires on the go
