Arm in arm on a summer night full moon up above
Some might think from the look of things we could be in love.
But you and I know better we know what we’re both about
If one of us should fall in love the other would fall out.
And if I loved you, you would want to run away
And if you loved me, I would be afraid to stay
How’d we ever get this way?
Laughing in the kitchen, touching in the dark
Some might think from the look of things there could be a spark
But you and I won’t let it burn and we won’t go all out
For if one of us should fall in love the other would fall out.
We can only kiss and run, leave before the harm is done.
So on and on and on we go in this crazy game
Some might think from the look of things we could be insane
Both afraid to get love both afraid to go without
Knowing that if one should fall the other would fall out.
