Yes, I am that man that
You did have the chance to be with,
To develop
Actions that will confess
Future thoughts
To hold fast on feelings that
Smile back at me,
Exhausted,
And say...
"You know your the sh*t right?"

Wrong!
As on meeting
You remembered a song,
Played on heavy rotation from your girl,
All yesterday...
That she's
"So alone..."
And all she's wishing
(And you know she doesn't ask for much)
That when he eventually comes along
He will be
"Tall
Dark
And strong,
Just tall
Dark and STRONG!"

Is that all you saw in I?
But was given foundation that
'Women’s actions don't lie',
As
Chosen foundation was my thigh
To pencil between
Black, white, black lines
Prompting
Fingers on dial in time,
To turn to
Preset speed dials to save time,
To create that
Final conversation formed by calendar dates
Which
Arrange a night to present
her
to
I
And now she can't wait...
And that's the story you tell.

Oh well...?
Or does this story have another twist to tell
As she now she tells
Every detail
On how my bedroom spread
Is laid down
Oh
So
Well,
And as
You lay there for tonights days rest
With wonderings that allow your
Leaving with that
Feeling
Time you start
Creeping a return,
In the form of those
Wants, needs to clenching yearns,
Desperately pleading
That I need to be drinking
From your
Now gleaming dripping well...
Meanwhile, still kicking yourself saying
"Girl, you’re a fool....!"
I bet you weren't expecting this call...

As... Tonight
With her
Being so involved in her
Thought process of my
"Potential"
Proposal for wedding bells,
She has failed to tell that your
Call wishing her night well
Was cut short when the phone hit the floor
On the
Vision
Of... Me
Entering from the silences of your door...
And you now having only a split second to decide
If...
You want those feelings from our first
Encounter
Be allowed to enter
Your mind
Once more...

Yes
I am that man that
You now have the chance to be with,
To
Develop
Actions that will confess
Future thoughts
To hold fast on feelings that
Smile back at me
Exhausted
And say...
"You know your the sh*t right?"

Right...
