Spare me your sympathy. I did it to myself.
I know how it's gonna be. I don't need someone else
to tell me that I'm crazy. She tells me all the time.
She's getting too close to me. It's time to self-destruct.
Don't sit next to me. Run while you can. I'll self-destruct.
Get in. Let's go for a ride. I'm such a harmless guy.
I'll look into your eyes and show you I'm on your side.
I'll move in for the kill. It's over before I start.
She's getting too close to me. It's time to self-destruct.
Don't sit next to me. Run while you can. I'll self-destruct.
I'll fall for her. Better take cover. I'll self-destruct.
I can't pretend that I, I don't see the end.
I can't pretend that I, I don't see the end.

    General Commenti can't believe no one has commented on this song yet. . but ummm. . this is a song about a boy. . knowing how he is. . knowing he can't get close to a girl cuz he will ruin it and hurt her. . and he;s not gonna pretend he doesn't kno that. . he's warning her. . he doesn't want her to feel bad for him. . what a great guy
