My Resistance Is Low

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

You touch my fingertips and my heart is aglow
You bend to kiss my lips and I can't let you go
Maybe I should resist, I'm a fool, I know
But at a time like this, my resistance is low

Your eyes have magic, they seem to say
"Come closer, come closer, my darling, come closer"
And somehow I can't stay away

Can't you see that I want to be adored more than you'll ever know
And I'm going overboard with a capital "O"
So don't be persistent, baby, keep your distance
You know my resistance is low

Your eyes have magic, they seem to say
"Come closer, come closer, my darling, come closer"
And somehow I can't stay away

Can't you see that I want to be adored more than you'll ever know
And I'm going overboard with a capital "O"
So don't be persistent, baby, keep your distance
You know my resistance is low

So don't be persistent, baby, keep your distance
You know my resistance is low

My resistance is low
My resistance is low
My resistance is low
