Something With You

Here is where the days turn to weeks
I’m just a glass of wine away from you
If it stings then your job is done
But I’ll wait it out even if it is a mistake

Yeah, all the boys are after your attention
I wonder, am I worth the time?
It’s just I have been messed around before
I try not to get my hopes up

But for you, I’ll make an exception

I’m sweating on your arrival
the embers died out, but I see them burning
In this room where I can’t see the stars
but I’ll still wish on a little departure from this requiem

I expect nothing from this
except maybe that I will miss
my one chance to prove I can
try for something
My one chance to prove I can
try for something with you

When I am tired and distraught yet again
if you can’t accept me at my worst
Could I accept you at your best
when you are everything to me

Yeah all the boys are after your attention
I can’t be bothered to do anything
I’ll just sit alone by the remains of my faith
and see if you join me

Will you make an exception for me?

I’m sweating on your arrival
the embers died out, but I see them burning
In this room where I can’t see the stars
but I’ll still wish on a little departure from this requiem

I expect nothing from this
except maybe that I will miss
my one chance to prove I can
try for something
My one chance to prove I can
try for something with you

Goddamn it, I’m rambling on again
you gotta stop me before I say something
out of line
If you weren’t so quiet but heck
I always loved that quality in a woman
I always loved it when you ignored me
even if it hurts me

The End
