I Wouldn't Wanna Happen To You

This song is by Embrace and appears on the compilation Fireworks: The Singles 1997-2002 (2002).

Know that I
Went as high
As I could go on my first time.
Where's the fun
If your feelings are left behind.

But it's your right
When you mean it
To find the proof
And make me hear it
'Cause when I'm wrong
I don't see it anymore.

'Cause I feel like a fake when I feel
Any feeling
And I wouldn't wanna happen to you
'Cause I know you mean it.

You have a laugh when you let go
It makes a big unwanted sideshow.
Why count the times
That you feel low
When you shine.

'Cause you're stone cold wise
And I'm in
To what you're doing
And I wouldn't wanna happen to you
'Cause I could never climb the walls you'd walk through
But it's the smiling lies that always come
To make you feel that I'm the one for you.

I know you feel like you've spent you're whole life
With people trying to keep you in your place.
Well no one knows you no better than me
When I say
No, no, no, no

I wouldn't wanna happen to you
'Cause I can't bear to climb the walls you walk through.
But it's the smiling lies that always come
To make you feel that I belong with you.

You pinned your hopes on me
Like I'm all you'll find
But I wouldn't wanna happen to you this time
Yeah
I've gone away, yeah
Gone away.
