    I love the tone of your voice
    I always have
    Somehow it always draws me in.
    Am I getting carried away?
    It's not true love
    Is what I'm doing somehow a sin?

    Maybe I'm still on the rebound
    Yeah...I'm lonely
    It's been a while since he's came and gone.
    Don't know what it is I'm searching for
    I need something
    And I'm hoping I won't have to wait long

    Screw it. Back to the tone of your voice
    It's amazing.
    How is it such a powerful tool?
    You can say the word "the"
    I'll still tremble
    It's enough of a reason to drool.

    God...I think I'm going crazy.
    Nostalgia?
    We haven't seen eachother in forever.
    And I still remember the times we shared
    Short as they were
    My feelings shall remain unrendered.

    You weren't even the cutest boy
    How'd you know
    A nice voice is what I love the most?
    It can only get you so far
    That's true.
    So I must now take this here oath:

    I will NOT surrender myself to someone
    ANY one
    No matter how hot I think they are
    I may look like a fool
    And that's okay
    Just don't get me drunk at some bar.

    I may be trusting and loving
    Well, it's true
    But I've got limits like your average Joe.
    One thing you need to understand
    Like, right now,
    Is that I will NEVER be some cheap little hoe.

    That voice...that troubling, beautiful voice
    Um...
    I'm just gonna have to hang in there.
    I know that I can do it if I try
    Just you wait.
    Geez...I wonder if you even care?

    Meanwhile, I'll sit here fantasizing
    As long as I want
    Simply because I can
    Don't know if you've become a jerk
    Blah...who really cares?
    I'm your VOICE'S number one fan.

    Whoodie-Hoo! That is some kinda voice!

    But only you have the power to resist it if the person with that voice is not a good choice for you.


    Nice stream-of-consciousness kinda piece here.
