but they are the romantic lyrics from one of my favorite songs.
Ani DiFranco wants to know if she's asking too much.
To which I say:
As long as your not asking it all of just ONE person, then
you can't possibly ask for too much.
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 misery or maybe just put it all to words and make me say, you know I never heard it put that way make me say, what did you just say? I want somebody
who can hold my interest hold it and never let it fall someone who can flatten me
with a kiss that hits like a fist
or a sentence, that stops me
like a brick wall because 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 in fact if you have to ask, forget it do and you'll regret it I'm tired of being the interesting one I'm tired of heving fun for two just lay yourself on the line and I might 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 someone who can twist me up in knots tell me, for the woman who has everything what have you got? I want someone
who's not afraid of me or anyone else in other words
I want someone who's not afraid of themself
do you think I'm asking too much?
