lyrics

The guarded, the hidden, the sweetly forbidden,
Holds fascination for me.
The apple of sin that I know I can't win
Always looks like the best on the tree.
And just when I had no doubt more than friendship was out,
David leaves me a kiss to peruse.
I've got the listen to reason, the boy's only teasin', David drive me crazy blues.

The advances I made only left him afraid
He faces life strictly alone.
I'd have got more response to my wishes and wants
If I'd poured 'em out over a stone.
But now he changes his mind on the kiss he declined;
Whose heart does he mean to confuse?
I've got the listen to reason, the boy's only teasin, David drive me crazy blues.

Our hands only brush and I tremble and flush
And my silly heart starting to climb,
Fear of the fire sharpens desire
But it's only a matter of time.
Because when willpower yields and he gets under my shields
He'll skedaddle right out of his shoes
I've got the listen to reason, the boy's only teasin', David drive me crazy blues.

He's only caught 'cause he thinks I am not.
He'll drop me flat as a plate.
I don't want to get hurt, see my heart in the dirt,
But I think it's a little too late,
And if I'm going to pay with my tears anyway
Tell me, what do I get for my dues?
I've got the listen to reason, the boy's only teasin', David drive me crazy blues.
