I want to settle down-
with someone more thrilling than the chase.
I’d love to be in a relationship-
once I break up with excitement.
I want someone dependable-
who will keep me on the tip of my toes.
A partner in crime sounds oh so lovely-
extra baggage sounds oh so heavy.
I want someone to answer to-
stop asking so many questions.
I want to know everything about you-
please keep me guessing.
I want to fall deeply and madly in love-
with something other than my freedom.
I want to be tangled up in bed-
but my legs need so much room.
I want to stay up late talking-
and wake up in silence.
I want to be selfless and give my all-
don’t take too much of me. I’d hate to resent you.
I want someone to lean on-
stop being a push-over.
I want to enjoy things together-
like spending time apart.
I want reassurance-
stop being so damn needy.
Support me unconditionally-
don’t put up with my bullshit.
Whisper to me, sweet-nothings-
hold the cheese.
I want someone to smother me-
from the other room.
I want someone to fall in love with my mind-
and want my body.
Give me everything-
make me want for something.
I don’t want to play games with you-
unless they’re ones I can win.
Let’s go everywhere together-
I don’t like it when you’re jealous-
why don’t you care about me?
I want someone who I can trust-
more than I trust myself.
I want someone who’s not high maintenance-
tell me what you want.
I want someone who will let me be silly-
why don’t you ever take me seriously?
I want you to be my soft place to fall-
I need a solid rock.
I’m not asking for much-
