What about me
That attracted you.
I am not the pretty girl
that you are used to.
Are you here to play
With me too.
I'm looking for
Only the truth.
You have a woman
Who truly loves you.
I can not play
The position of #2.
You see I want to be clear
Because my heart is sensitive;
And boy that's the truth.
What if you make
Me fall in love with you.
What then will I have to do.
You see I'm really feeling you,
I cant keep my mind off of you.
Boy if only you knew
What you about to step into.
I'll give you time to decide
Will you give up or keep trying;
To see what will become of you and I.
A woman like me only come around
Once in a lifetime....
