I never would hold you too close.
I never would think of you the most.
Some people say I'm up to no good,
but I never would, I never would.

I never would be a stain on your heart.
I never would make you fall apart.
Some people think I won't do as I should,
but I never would, I never would.

I'd never hurt any part of you.
I'd never say what is untrue, not to you.

I never would never see you again.
I never would never be your friend.
Please don't make me misunderstood,
because I never would, I never would.
