What's it all for?It's not that I want a boyfriend;What's it all for?6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I'm quite happy without.
I mean, who needs the protection
and the obligation and the
complete and utter trial?
And the commitment?
Not worth a second of your time.
Its just that,
oh I dont know;
Ive always grown up with the idea that
someday, somewhere there will be
someone waiting for me.
Well now Im not so sure.
I love the idea of love,
but thats all it is.
An idea based on chemical reactions
and previous encounters
and historically inaccurate films
that show boy meets girl
and girl develops delusions.
But I dont not want a boyfriend,
or at least a boy that is a friend.
Theres something comforting about
midnight phone calls and
as long as one keeps their word.
And who know how often that happens?
I want reassurance
that I will not die alone.
A glimmer of hope
that everybody has a chance.
That even when youre old
and fragile and weakened by doubt;
there may be a reason for it
