"Don't Work Yourself Up" as written by Sacha Skarbek and Tristan Prettyman....
I might run off at any given time
Don't leave no notes there ain't no reason to lie
Guess I haven't found what I'm looking for
Can't keep my hands to myself
Or my eyes off the door

Is it any wonder that I'm on to the next
I'll be the first one to tell you
And the last to forget
Don't let me drag you into this bitterness
Sometimes I don't even understand the half of it

[Chorus]
Don't work yourself up
Don't work yourself up
Don't work yourself up
Too much, too much love

[Chorus]

Sometimes I can't stand to be apart
I walk around this city, alone 'til it's dark
And if the sadness won't ever go away
I suppose I'll build it a home
So it has a nice place to stay

Most of the time I don't mind the company
But God I wish you would stay
Why do you have to leave
Seems like we always want what we can't have
But that's just life baby, you can't get mad

When there's no one to blame
And nothing here to see
You don't call, I don't blame you
I don't even trust me

[Chorus: x2]

I want to love you but I don't know how
I want to love you but I don't know how
I want to love you but I don't know how
I want to love you but I don't know how

And this happens all the time
Oh yes it happens all the time�

    General Commenthere are the correct lyrics:

    I might run off at any given time
    don't leave no notes, there ain't no reason to lie.
    I guess I havent found what I'm looking for
    can't keep my hands to myself, or my eyes off the door.
    Is it any wonder that I'm on to the next?
    I'll be the first one to tell you
    and the last to forget.
    don't let me drag you into this bitterness
    sometimes I cant even understand the half of it

    dont work yourself up too much, oh love.
    dont work yourself up too much, oh love.

    Sometimes I can't stand to be apart,
    I walk around this city alone till its dark.
    and if the sadness won't ever go away
    I suppose I'll build it a home so it has a nice place to stay.
    Most of the time I don't mind the company
    and I wish to God you would stay,
    why do you have to leave?
    Seems like you always want what you can't have
    well thats just life baby and you can't get mad.
    well there's no one to blame, and nothing here to see,
    you don't call I don't blame you,
    I don't even trust me.

    dont work yourself up too much, oh love.
    dont work yourself up too much, oh love.

    I wanna love you but I don't know how
    I wanna love but I don't know how
    Don't work yourself up too much too much love.
    (repeat)
