"We Will Not Be Lovers" as written by and Michael Scott....
You just stepped into the main track
climbed down off the fence
Words are your weapon
lies are your defense
I know what you want
and I see what you see
You're looking for somebody
but he isn't me
Find yourself another
because we will not be lovers
How your eyes are like tortures
and your presence is bliss
I never knew time
could speed and zip like this
The touch of your flesh
is tough to resist
Planets collide, collide
at the smack of your kiss
But you can kiss your brother
because we will not be lovers
Now you're pulling down curtains
You've been sparking old flames
You've been causing disturbance
crying for shame
You've been Knocking on doors
You've been abusing my name
You've been casting up doubt
you've been throwing your blame
But you can throw it at your mother
we will not be lovers
Now the world's full of trouble
everybody's scared
The landlords are frowning
cupboards are bare
People are scrambling
like dogs for a share
It's cruel and its hard
but it nothing compared to
what we do to each other
to each other
We will not be lovers!
we will not be lovers, no
We will not be lovers, no

    General CommentDamn this song hits home in so many levels. To me he's talking about a relationship where he's trying to hold his feelings back and tell himself that they wont be lovers, even though he actually does love her and knows how amazing they're.

    General Comment"How your eyes are like tortures"
    Wonder if this should not read:
    "How your eyes are like torches"?
    Surprised that this engaging toon has not garnered more comments so insightful it is. How we all struggle with feelings; unrequited love among the best subjects for songs (and poems etc) and this being one of the most achingly earnest.
    Yet his insistence is a contradiction. His passion will get the better of him so strong is the reaction she inspires in him. Oh to be able to experience such intensities at least once in life.
    But it is the eternal conundrum, to be so drawn to a fellow human and at the same time be so frustrated. It reaffirms just how limited is our understanding of the mechanisms of attraction. I suspect this is a paen or plea to reassure someone in the writer's life... but where did he put all that emotion?
