i don't need a ring as a promise
the fact that you're here is enough
i guess some people find it necessary
to express love through shiny stuff

i don't need a poet or a singer
anything you say is pretty great
some swoon for jerks in bands
i just want to stay up and talk late

i don't need a sex god or a playmate
you don't have to wear pants that tight
but it would be nice to have you here
then at least i could sleep at night

i'm sorry if i sound rather picky
i just want you to act naturally

i mean, we could sing and lay all day,
just as long as you say you'll stay.
