Hard Not to Fall in Love

It's hard not to fall in love with you.
Won't you let me down gently if I do?
Just so you know, before I start,
Not to fall in love with you is hard.

It's hard not to watch the water shine.
Everybody stares at the things that make them blind,
And you're so bright from afar.
Not to fall in love with you is hard.
It's hard.

The moon is made of marble stone.
The sea is filled with drunkard's wine.
The bottle's empty on the subway at the end of the line.

It's hard not to hold on and believe
As fortune on the rail carries you away from me,
Letting go is the hardest part,
And not to fall in love with you is hard.
It's hard.
