The Only Way




One step closer
 Close enough for our breath to touch
 Two hands that rise to map the contours of my curves
 His pressure matched with my desire
 His force caused my resistance to crumble

 Just once girl
 You won't forget it
 Forgetting isn't the problem I need to know I won't regret it

 Nah baby nah
 My two arms in the air
 He pulls my shirt off revealing me
 He drops to his knees
 I release the part of me that is rarely awakened

 Ten scars on his back
 Oh yeah baby just like that
 Do you know how long I waited?

 Too long
 I told you baby I'd show you
 Now turn around
 See you don't know
 But I'll show you
 He slowly corrected my positioning

 I wondered . . .
 How long would my bliss last?
 How long would I shimmer with our sex mingled?
 How long would I have his attention?
OH YEAH BABY
 Just like that
 His touch invading my most private places
 Naughty Naughty
 Dying too nice
 Wanting to do things right but this is the only way

 To keep him
 To have him
 To hold him

 The only way
