Hurry up, bub

You know when people say "There's someone out there who's made just for you, and you'll be glad it never worked out with the boys from before"?

Well, I'm still waiting for you. And I promise you, by the time you get here, I'll be ready for you. I promise you I won't be confused or detached, I won't be clingy or indecisive. But if I'm not ready, will you wait for me too?

When we used to talk

You always knew me as a dreamer
I could talk for hours about how our future could be.
Stupid unrealistic things like
we would settle down in Canada,
you would do your residency in internal medicine,
I would be writing my Master's thesis,
our kids would be born overseas,
some dumb shit like that.

But they were always my dreams
and you never really talk much
you just listened.
And somehow my dreams became yours
and we both wanted the same things.

All we ever wanted was a life together.

But even though I am a fool for you
Somewhere I'll feel deep down you want me too
You just don't want me
enough

Nights

Some nights
I feel arms wrapped around me
and then I think of you
but I don't even know who you are

Come find me.

I don't want to be your friend
I just want to be your lover
No matter how it ends
No matter how it starts

Forget about your house of cards and
I'll do mine
