How Do I

I can hear it in your laughter
And see it in your eyes
You think about me all day long
And dream of me at night
The question’s burning in your mind
And you’re wondering if I might
Oh do I?

But your heart is headed
Down a dead end road
That fire’s burning higher
Than I can go
I wish it wasn’t so
How do I let you know?
How do I?

How do I tell you
I don’t love you
The way you love me
I am your friend
But you look at me with
A lover’s passion
How do I tell you
It has to end?

Chemistry’s a funny thing
To tango takes two
The heart wants what the heart wants
And I know this to be true
Oh there’s nothing I can do
I’ll try to break it gently to you
How do I?

And you’ve got me in your posse
Until the day I die
I’ll stand by you, I’ve got your back
And that’s no lie
I am your friend for life
But that’s where I draw the line
How do I?

How do I tell you
I don’t love you
The way you love me
I am your friend
But you look at me with
A lover’s passion
How do I tell you
It has to end?

I thought of writing you a letter
Or picking up the phone
I’ve had so many chances
To speak up when we’re alone
I’ve been too scared to hurt you
But here it goes,
The truth in a song…

This is how I tell you
I don’t love you
The way you love me
I am your friend
But you look at me with
A lover’s passion
Now I must tell you
It has to end

[Instrumental/Hum]

How do I?
