I'm Losing It

I'm losing the faces, I'm losing the names
Quit toying with me, quit playing games

My had spins faster than ever before
As I try to decide if I should open the door

I lose sense of direction, I lose sense of smell
I can't see a thing when I'm under your spell

But no, I need to focus, I need to stay here
Do not surrender, though he is near

My hands are now shaking, I'm trying to hide
The things I wish I didn't feel inside

I smile my smile when you smile yours
But It's a scary feeling-
Knowing for me you'd get down on all fours

Please, just don't. Don't flatter me so
you love more about me than I even know

Your eyes intrigue me and I'm lost in them
Like the deepest lake, the glossiest gem

I'm losing it all, except for you
And if I did, I don't know what I would do

    Don't even worry about it! Songs have the same name, right? Why can't poems? And anyways, they're not exactly the same :) Now I'll have to go check out yours... great minds DO think alike, Dan. Love, J.
