It's not because I don't love you,
But you see
it always starts out the same.
I learn about you from a friend
when he tells me your name,
how much he loves you,
all the wondrous things you say
and that I need to get to know you;
The next time I visit that friend,
I try to play cool,
desperately trying to hide
how much I really care.
But inside I'm pulsing,
unable to think of anything
except when can I get you alone
when can I make you sing.
After all I've heard so much about you;
hated by those that don't matter
and loved by those that do.
So when it's time for me to leave
you come along without hesitancy
at home we get to know each other,
when your arch your spine for me
like you did for your last lover.
I hint at deep intentions
when I ask you to move in;
promising nights in each others arms,
my love and undivided attention.
“I have room for you in my life”
but despite this all
I still might give you away.
It's not that I won't miss you
when you're gone,
the problem is I'm a traveler;
I move on,
and on and on,
frequently meeting new faces
that hold a wonder for truth;
and they remind me of me
the me before you.
it isn't that I don't love you,
But I've met someone new,
and this someone needs you.
