When Love Is A Good Excuse

When Love Is A Good Excuse

Verse 1

Man: Someday, When you notice I love you

          Do not wait for my “I love you”

         To start loving me

         When the world leaves you behind

         And you are feeling low

         When the country music disappoints


        Someone yearns for your company

Woman: Oh God, where resides my destined lover

               That I may go out to seek him

               Will he still love me in a wrinkled body?

               Will I know us when we meet?

               What is he doing now?

              Is he teaching his younger brothers

              to ride a horse?

              Is he also taking a walk alone?


Verse 2

Man: Oh lost princess

          When your prayers feel faint

          When it seems God is not answering

          Your prayer for a miracle

          Know that I,

          I’m just here praying for a ‘you’

Woman: Let your heart’s soup spill

               Into my heart

               And I’m assured of a tasty life

Man: Let your smile

         get in my way

         And you will make my day


Verse 3

Woman: Where is the prince charming

               That has my other glass slipper?

Man:  There she is

           The Cinderella who has my ribs

            Every man becomes a poet,

            every man who has seen you

Woman: Every lady is an addict

              Who has tasted your words

               In dreams

               Share with me your world

               Even if it lacks moon and stars

               Even if it lacks oceans and flowers

               As long as it has a lovers’ bench and us

               It is perfect.

Man:    We will inhale flowers all morning

           Watch birds build their nest all-afternoon

           And name stars all-night with sleepy eyes

          But only when someday

         When love is a good excuse.
