In the movies, the girl always gets the guy
But they never show you how she keeps him.
We haven't even been together a single month
And I swear I'm about to lose you.
I know I'm not the perfect girlfriend,
I know I've no excuse.
I should be better, I must be better,
I just never know what to do.
Do I play the part of the egoist, the
Dominatrix, always in control?
Should I be soft and demure, quiet and shy,
Always listening but never giving her opinion?
Or am I supposed to be a slut, lying down
And letting you do as you please, moaning where appropriate?
Perhaps I'll be a tease, letting our tongues interlock but nothing more,
Or the naive schoolgirl, too afraid to kiss, or even look you in the eye.
What would please you more? Which persona should I take?
Because baby, I'm convinced that
Being myself might have won your heart,
But life's not a movie, and that will never keep it.
