    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...

    Sometimes someone may seem too good to be true, even when the truth is staring you right in the face. In those cases we definitely need to...proceed.
