Where Did that Tenderness Go?
Enjoy the music...
Where Did It Go??
I was young and not so dumb
you were a year older my dearest blond
Wish I was a year older to show you I was the one
you just chose the older dude, a damn Navy Seal
Every time I turned 14 or 15
you were already 15 and then 16
wasn't able to catch with you
dancing near your window
to show you the real me
Pants too big, skinny and not so strong
but with a heart that now you wish you had
where was that tenderness that you gave me in dreams
waking up to see my dog licking up my nostrils yuck oh please!
now I'm older and mature enough to blow your mind
but your presence in tender years made me strong
not ready to give up my own world
accepting the way I am...dear Susan
Sensitive enough to write poems about you and me
thanks to those early experiences that made me unique
I guess my platonic dream was just a wishful thing
thanks anyway for still having me as a friend
As the melody goes, I was a child with tender thoughts
walking my own walk as you passed me by
not old enough to arouse deepest feelings inside that mind
but I tried and tried, and broke my back doing that break dance
Cool enough to be who I am
a guy who can have fun and dance
with no refrain when the beat pumps up that jam
finally I let it out in this inspiration of mine
thanks a lot dear Susan,
you did change my early years and my whole life!!
