Thompson Twins – Still Waters lyrics

You see me standing there
Move a little closer take a look
You see an ordinary man
You think that you can read me like a book
So you cast me a smile
Reel me in with striptease eyes
But you're way out of your depth
And you won't heed the warning signs
You're walking on thin ice
You're living on borrowed time
You're playing with dynamite
still waters run deep (Still waters run deep)
you better look before you leap (Still waters)
I don't wanna scare you
I don't want to do you any harm
But you've got your finger on the trigger
And you're about to set off my alarm
You oughta know by now
Things are never what they seem
And if you play with fire
You've gotta to be able to take the heat
