The Beautiful Lie

It was a new thing
And if it went bad,
You’d laugh in that way you do;
It seemed right
At the time.

I didn’t mean to scare you;
It was a spot and nothing more.
I need to know if I can relate
One time without falling in love.

Was it you or me?
I’d like to think it was you.
And yet…
You’re that scary kind of beautiful;
From the first,
I’d do anything you say.

I’m on my way
If that’s for the best.
But if I smile just a little
Too much,
Well, I’m only a man
And you’re most certainly
A woman.
