I don’t play with my words
Like I don’t play with my food

I’m not really the type

Who swings with every mood

Let me just put it bluntly

You’ve been in my thoughts

Lately my mind’s been adrift 

I’m feeling kind of lost

I’ve determined that I like you

Don’t read more to what’s been said.

Don’t let my slight endearment

Get way over your head

Will it turn into love?

That I really can’t say.

I’m just happy to spend some time

But I take things day by day.

And if by chance you like me, too

That would be just fine.

But should you pass me up

The loss is not mine.
