You could be looking right at her
You could be feeling these things
Like, how you’d pursue her
and make her a queen to your king
But she just looks at her liquor
as he lifts up her chin
So don’t tell her you love her
It just complicates things
She could be looking right at you
when others don’t care
‘Though you sing your song truly
you’re singing it to the air
She might hear a word that you’re saying
She might love how you sing
But, when he asks if they’re staying
it kinda complicates things

So don’t tell her you love her
No, don’t tell her that it stings
when she’s out with another
on them nights when you sing

It’s when you’re hot ‘neath them stage lights
and she’s out in the cold dark
It’s when it all just seems so right
Let the music start!
You could be singing your heart out
She may love how you sing
But, don’t tell her you love her
It just complicates things
