Nothing Personal

Lyrics and Music by George Douglas Lee

 

I try to hide it, tried to deny it

But I can’t fight it, when I’m near you

 

Tried to conceal it, not to reveal it

Do you feel it when I’m near you? (What is real?)

 

Can’t be a face in your crowd, (It feels too lonely

I want to shout it out loud (But I can only)

Stand back and watch, like I’m not really there

It’s killing me to keep it inside

 

It’s nothing personal, nothing - if not personal

The time has come, I just have to have you

It’s nothing personal, nothing - if not personal

The time has come, there’s nothing else to do

 

I’m on the outside, dying on the inside

Too scared to tell you, how I really feel

Watchin’ and waiting, anticipating

It’s been long enough for me to know that it’s real (what is real?)

 

Once you realize (now it’s time you knew)

And see it in my eyes (Hope you feel it too)

I’m giving all I have – how much is enough?

And it’s killing me to keep it inside

 

It’s nothing personal, nothing - if not personal

The time has come, I just have to have you

It’s nothing personal, nothing - if not personal

The time has come, there’s nothing else to do

 

Do you know what it’s like?

To stand back

And just watch - like I’m not really there

 

Yes, a face in your crowd who waits for a sign from you

Waiting in line, Yes, it’s true,

I thought you knew, I’m in love with you

 

Once you realize (now it’s time you knew)

And see it in my eyes (Hope you feel it too)

I’m giving all I have – how much is enough? (what is real?)

And it’s killing me to keep it inside

 

It’s nothing personal, nothing - if not personal

The time has come, I just have to have you

It’s nothing personal, nothing - if not personal

The time has come, there’s nothing else to do
