Let me listen ....while you speak

Updated on March 3, 2014

The part you don't have to see is that
I am but a man
That's just my problem though
I'm sure you'll understand

Just listening to you're voice
is pay out enough for me
It's all about being next to you
can't you even see

I was self exiled as a younger man
I couldn't even speak as a child
But the truest yearning for love of all
a boy his yearnings wild

Now a man though I watch as the irony
multitudes these games of love unfold
And yet here we are in intimacy
in from out of some cold

You think "when is he going to hit on me"
all that is up to you
For now though I'd rather sit here
and be a friend so true
