“My Lovely Enemy”

I can’t trust myself today
To stay away from her she can’t come out to play
She hides herself…from me why can’t I see
She’ll always stay my lovely enemy

Amy, my lovely enemy, Amy

And she’s away, away she always runs
Since she has learned to distrust anyone’s
Words, absurd I’m so ashamed to think
That I could change her views with promises I’d keep

Amy, my lovely enemy, Amy
Who hates to love, who hates to love me
Amy, my lovely enemy, Amy
Who hates to love so openly

My lovely enemy, Amy
Who is always in a hurry
To hide herself in subtleties
She’ll never say
She’ll never say
She’s sorry

I watch out for her in the corner of my eye
Peripheral vision. Keep it inside
It’s my turn to hide

Cause she’s a riddle I’ll never figure out
Even though my love will always be devout
Recede my trust no matter what she pleads
When she figures out I’m the one she could believe

Amy, my lovely enemy, Amy

Amy, my lovely enemy, Amy
Who hates to love, who hates to love me
Amy, my lovely enemy, Any,
Who hates to love, she hates to love me
Amy, my lovely enemy, Amy
Does she regret the day she ran from me?
