"I Can't Fall In Love" as written by Sammy Fain and Irving Kahal....
It's a cold and foggy morning in the hills of silverlake
outside the window helicopters circle in the air
the birds are calling loudly to make up for all the noise
but the morning traffic's stronger as it drowns out all their cries

here inside, my darling sleeps
the clock ticks on, I lie awake
the grey turns white and shadows grow
and all I think is

I can't fall in love

it's a monday in december, all the people go to work
try to make some money just to buy a better car
they'll see her in a magazine they'll buy on their way home
and think of her on beaches as the snow comes down outside

here inside my darling sleeps
the clock ticks on, I lie awake
the grey turns white and shadows grow
and all I think is

I can't fall in love

here inside, my darling sleeps
the clock ticks on, I lie awake
the grey turns white and shadows grow
the birds go quiet, an alarm goes off

now take the shower, still half asleep
mind slips away, the morning shave
the coffee cup, the kiss goodbye
I go to work and all I think is

    General Commentsuch a great song

    not sure whether the singer means that he can't afford to fall in love now or whether he's actually unable. I prefer the first one, cause someone saying they can't love is depressing

    General CommentI believe this song is talking about how he cannot afford to fall in love.
    He calls her "my darling".

    He spends the morning thinking how wonderful she is while drinking coffee, shaving, etc.
    The kiss goodbye.. He stayed after a night with her and is beginning to fall in love with her but doesn't believe it himself.
