lyrics

Verse
It started with my heart just skipping a beat,
A belly-full of butterflies each time we’d meet
But every look you throw my way, seems to make it worse.

Now I’m lucky if I can think straight,
I try to look away when you radiate,
How am I supposed to break this beautiful curse.

Chorus
Why did you have to slam the door shut?
Hearing it hit me like a punch to the gut.
But I know what I’d prefer if I had to choose.

But no matter how hard I tried
I couldn’t find a way to fill me up inside
So I started to come down – with a case of the yous.

Verse
Now I never ever want to hear myself say:
“She was the one that got away”
I’m not the kind to let the catch of a lifetime go.

I don’t know how, but you’ve got me hooked,
Take a double-take at what you overlooked
If you ever feel like going against the flow.




Chorus
They say there’s plenty more fish in the sea –
That I’m below you by some 20,000 leagues;
The more I fall, the deeper I end up in the blues.

So I end up fumbling around,
For the right words so it doesn’t sound,
Like I’ve got a bad case of the yous.

Verse
If only I could get you out of my head,
Fill it up with thoughts of someone else instead,
But I know that just aint a possibility.

Dreams of you (even when I’m awake)
Make it kind of hard for me to concentrate.
So please let it be more than an exercise in futility.

Chorus
You’ve given me a lethal does,
You’re about to make me go comatose
But this moment here I just can’t bring myself to lose.

Can you see you got me talking double-dutch,
‘Cause you’re proving just a little too much

For me, so now I’m through,
Please tell me what to do,
So I can be rid of this bad, bad, bad, bad case of the yous.
