4. I Don't Want to (Fall in Love)

INTRODUCTION:
When I first wrote this song, I didn’t play it at any shows. I thought people wouldn’t want to hear it, because it wasn’t typical "pop". On a whim, I performed it at a small show, and much to my surprise, everyone loved it. Screw what’s “normal”!

LYRICS:

Verse 1: I can’t get rid of this feeling. 
My head is reeling. 
I try to get you off my mind. 
I close my eyes, but you’re all I can find. 

CHORUS: I don’t want to fall in love, 
And I’m not ready to give up. 
Too much to do while I’m on my own. 
Too much to see when I’m alone. 
I gotta find myself, before I find anyone else, 
I don’t want to fall in love. 

Verse 2: You don’t know what you’re doing to me. 
Do you even see? 
Ooh, you’re pushing me too far. 
Who do you think you are? 

CHORUS: I don’t want to fall in love,  
And I’m not ready to give up.  
Too much to do while I’m on my own.  
Too much to see when I’m alone.  
I gotta find myself, before I find anyone else,  
I don’t want to fall in love. 

I don’t want to fall in love.
