ASKING    TOO    MUCH

i want somebody who
sees the pointlessness
and still keeps their purpose in mind
i want somebody who
has a tortured soul some of the time
i want somebody who
will either put out for me
or put me out of my misery
or maybe just put it all into words and make me go
you know, i never heard it put that way 
make me go, what did you just say!?

i want somebody who
can hold my interest
hold it and never let it fall
somebody who can flatten me
with a kiss that hits like a fist
or a sentence that stops me
like a brick wall
if you hear me talking
listen to what i'm not saying
if you hear me playing guitar
listen to what i'm not playing
and don't ask me to put words
to all the spaces between notes
don't ask me to put words 
to all the silence i wrote
in fact, if you have to ask, forget it
do and you'll regret it
i am tired of being the interesting one
i'm tired of having fun for two
just lay yourself on the line
i might just lay myself down by you
but don't sit behind your eyes
and wait for me to surprise you
i want somebody who
can make me scream until it's funny
give me a run for my money
i want somebody who can twist me up in knots
tell me, for the woman who has everything
what have you got?
i want somebody who's not afraid of me
or anyone else
in other words i want someone
who is not afraid
of themselves
do you think i am asking too much?
