2003-08-07 Maybe You Should Be

Maybe you should be cooking chicken
Not making love
Not worrying about love
Not opening to love
Don't need love
Don't need worry
Don't need to be
Part of a couple


Maybe you should be reading the news
Not spending time
Not giving time
Not being there
Don't want to spend
Don't want to give
Don't need anyone
To feel complete


But my warmth in your bed
Holds you
But my touch on your back
Makes you shutter
And the desire that wells in you
When you hear my voice
Keeps you from the chicken
Keeps you away from the news
Keeps you worrying
Against your instincts

I ask you 

What do we do?
