It's Just The First Night

I know you’re tryin’ hard to resist me
Or maybe it’s not so hard at all
I just know that you tempt me baby
And I’m tryin’ to make you fall

You need to quit thinking so much
And talking about one night stands
There’s always a first time for everything
And that’s not always where it ends

There’s always a first time
But it’s about to walk on past
We need to get things started
Even if it feels too fast
How can we know for sure
If tonight will be forever?
That’s what love is all about
The risk is part of the pleasure

You say no but you don’t walk away
You like to look and listen to what I say
Maybe it’s only what your ego wants to hear
I’ll be around until someone else draws me near

There’s always a first time
But it’s about to walk on past
We need to get things started
Even if it feels too fast
How can we know for sure
If tonight will be forever?
That’s what love is all about
The risk is part of the pleasure

Interesting Poem!! Some girls are more concerned with reputation as well as thinking long term, they want and need to feel special. :)

@Patty - yeah I know... these are some song lyrics and the guy is getting impatient (horny? Ha) and he wants her to not to worry about things that work themselves out... but she is special to him... I mean he wrote a song for her right? !!!!

Sometimes the physical ends the most important part of a connection. Your lyrics say "You like to look and listen to what I say", which I interprete as she knows she values the importance of the relationship as it is and is weighing what losses she'd be left with if she gets physically involved before she is ready. Love is always a risky proposition worthy of careful consideration. Your lyrics state love's conundrum perfectly.

Hi Amy. I think you pretty much figured that line out... I guess the minds allure can be more than the physical but then as the old song say's, "And then I went and spoiled it all by saying something stupid like I love you."
