I'm a standby lover, with all the duties of a partner; but without a proper invitation. I'm your safety net, a dollar in your pocket, the also-ran. You can bench me; bend me, ghost me for awhile, lead with breadcrumbs, make me smile, save me for a rainy day, tuck me up and play away, And when you've found the one you're after, Will your heart be filled with love and laughter?
I’d like to believe somebody like you is interested in me, but my confidence is too low to believe that. I’m sure you’re just another beautiful butterfly casually passing by, so stunning that it puts my whole life on standby for a moment. Meanwhile I’m just apart of the background in yours, simply cheap scenery in your journey.
A new babe on the way, Does she arrive today? The stork is on standby, Is she coming down the slide? A star in heaven's berth, Winging her way to Earth, Now an atomic cluster, Has she got a dust buster? Her future unplanned, Soon in Earthling's band, When is she coming down the slide? Right now, the stork is on standby!
