Not This Time

Ooh with a mind that renders everything sensitive
What chance do I have here?
Put an end, put an end
Put an end to every dream
When you're near, I fear you
And I forget myself

Not this time baby
Not this time
Not this time baby
Not this time

I don't know why I give in but I do every time
And here I am a-wondering why I did it again
Too-re-aye, too-re-oh, too-re-aye, too-re-oh, too-re-oh
That's what I say
It keeps me going and it keeps the shit away

I don't know what it is
Every time you're near
I fear you
And I forget myself

No, not this time babe
Not this time you won't
Not this time
Not this time darling

C'mon we all sing --
Too-re-aye, too-re-aye, too-re-oh
Too-re-aye, too-re-aye, too-re-oh
Too-re-aye, too-re-aye, too-re-oh
Too-re-aye, too-re-aye, too-re-oh
Not this time

Not this time you won't
Not this time babe
No
Not this time
