The Girl That I Want

I tip toe to town when I know she’s around
‘Cause I can’t bear the sound of us having a row
I get my sleeves wet with all the hot sweat
I’m begging daily like a dog in heat

She says “Just take a little step and who knows what you might get”
One day we might shake hands like civilized adults

When did the magic leave? I’ve still got some up my sleeve
But she won’t watch my prestige, she’s focused on my faults

‘Cause the girl that I want don’t want me to sing her songs
I sing promises so true that I’m still yours
But the girl that I want don’t want me, she don’t want me anymore

I know you’re laughing, it’s all I’m asking
And if you’re not then take a listen to this:

I made my mind up but I can’t get up,
The punch you pulled took me out for the count

Now dance your merry feet all the way down my very street
Just keep me close enough to know I still want more

Yes, so I’m fortunes fool, I’ll always be a fool for you
This love will never die, it’s just not gonna end

‘Cause the girl that I want don’t want me to sing her songs
I sing promises so true that I’m still yours
But the girl that I want don’t want me, she don’t want me anymore.
