You Shouldn't Look At Me That Way

From The Elvis Costello Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Am I fine?
Am I pleasing?
Are you pitying?
Are you teasing?
You shouldn't look at me
You shouldn't look at me that way

Should a glance from you just shoot through me
If a glimpse of you could undo me
You shouldn't look at me
You shouldn't look at me that way

Time, among all your enemies,
Leaves you nothing but bitter memories
From the first blush of affection
To avoiding your reflection
You shouldn't look at me
You shouldn't look at me that way

Now the flashbulbs may dazzle
While you're figuring out this puzzle
You shouldn't look at me
You shouldn't look at me that way

Don't take more than I offer
No, my love, or I'll make you suffer
You shouldn't look at me
You shouldn't look at me that way

Time, among all of your enemies,
Makes disguises from drastic remedies
From the first brush with perfection
To avoiding your own reflection
You shouldn't look at me
You shouldn't look at me that way
