A Lessen (Lesson) In Love (From A Woman's View).

Like a special wave on a special sea,
You're the one I chose to carry me,
But like any wave on any sea,
You'll only take me as far as the beach,
You'll take me to a desert land,
You'll leave me there face down in the sand,
And it's not like I can say I didn't understand,
'Cos I was told long ago by some life-saving man,
He said, you're lucky he didn't take you away my dear,
Throw you to the sharks then disappear,
I've been there before that's how I wound up here,
Sitting on a sand bar drowning memories in beer,
Then he said something that was quite unclear,

He said, don't pay attention to the flirty way I walk,
It's not a sturdy way to walk,
But it gets me in bed,
And please excuse the punny way I talk,
It's a funny way to talk,
But there's something to be said,

I only had one thing to say to him,
'Cos I didn't quite understand him then,
I said, nice to meet you, I hope I see you again,
And I wasn't even sure of what I meant,
And I found myself trying to capture his heart,
But he had no interest in me,
He said, we'll never make it very far,
I can love you, but can you love me,
It made sense to him, but not to me,

Then he said, don't pay attention to the flirty way I walk,
It's not a sturdy way to walk,
But it gets me in bed,
And please excuse the punny way I talk,
It's a funny way to talk,
But there's something to be said,

Like a special love in a special case,
I'll choose another lover to take your place,
But like any love in any case,
He can only take me as far as disgrace,
He'll take me to a crowded church,
And leave me there face up in the dirt,
Unless of course, I can't be hurt,
From what I've seen and all I've heard,
He might just take me away from here,
Then toss me aside and disappear,
I've never been there before but I will, I fear,
Sitting in a snack bar, drowning memories in beer,
Now suddenly everything is clear,

When he said, don't pay attention to the flirty way I walk,
It's not a sturdy way to walk,
But it gets me in bed,
And please excuse the punny way I talk,
It's a funny way to talk,
But there's something to be said,

And now I know what I would say,
'Cos I understand his feelings, I know his ways,
I'd say nice to meet you, I hope you can stay,
But I'm not so sure it's not too late,
Now I understand he was trying to help,
And what he was saying to me,
He was saying, don't fall in love with love itself,
Please fall in love with me,
It finally made sense to me.
