Don't fall in love with me yet
We've only recently met
True I'm in love with you, but
You might decide I'm a nut
Give me a week or two to
Go absolutely cuckoo
Then, when you see your error
Then you can flee in terror
Like everybody else does
I only tell you this because
I'm easy to get rid of
But not if you fall in love
Know now that I'm on the make
And if you make a mistake
My heart will certainly break
I'll have to jump in a lake
And all my friends will blame you
There's no telling what they'll do
It's only fair to tell you
I'm absolutely cuckoo

    General CommentDid anyone else find it sort of funny that an album titled "69 Loves Songs" opens with the line "Don't fall in love with me?"
    Cause I sure did.

    General Commentit's that insecurity when you first meet someone
    and you are soooo in love, but what do they think of you?

    god this song perfectly transcribes the feeling i have
    at the beginning of ever new relationship
    and i like the part about the lake....
    it's like "i need your love,
    but i need it to be real,
    and i'm fragile...so be careful with my heart"
    only they say it better than i can

    General CommentI like how it is song the second time with two voices overlapping. For me that indicates that the singer of the first verse has found someone who is just as insecure and easily absorbed in love. And that's a beautiful thing.
