Prose - Soothe your Fears
I could ask you to spend your life with me
But why does that seem so shocking?
People do it right after they say hello
They see hope in a person they don’t really know
And what about your love for me?
Will you give me everything I want?
Or will you make me wait for you?
Like a man who truly loves you would do
You wonder if you really know me
And if I’ll stay after we make love
But just watch how I treat my family and friends
That’s how I’ll treat you no matter how it ends
You wonder if you will get a call from me
Even though last night I screamed my promise
Would a man be so shallow as to take a flower
And not return to the garden where he felt love's power?
You looked into my eyes to see what you could see
And my soul reflected your hopes back to you
You wondered if I could tell you anything more
Am I the man you are looking for?
