I tremble at your touch
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I want you oh-so much
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I can see so clearly
That we are worlds apart
But when you are near me
I can't see beyond my heart

I worship at your shrine
You said I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I begged you to be mine
I said I wouldn't
But that's the way it is

I love you forever
Though it may never be
But that's the way it is
With a guy like me

I tremble at your touch
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I want you oh-so much
I know I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I can see so clearly
That we are worlds apart
But, oh, when you are near me
I can't see beyond my heart

I worship at your shrine
You said I shouldn't
But that's the way it is

I begged you to be mine
I said I wouldn't
But that's the way it is

I'll love you forever
Though it may never be
But that's the way it is
With people like you and me
