If You Can Answer Yes… [song lyric]

Posted on Updated on

This song I wrote this morning as the flipside to the one I wrote the other day, which was entitled “In a Box”. I guess it says it all. Enjoy, if you can…

Do you have the time of day to play around me
Are you always there in some small special way
Do you love to sleepy talk at 3am time
With someone who in your sweet bed does lay

Have you always moved whichever way your heart goes
Do you light the day up with your torchlike laugh
Do you never follow all the fads of fashion
Do you see your journey as a sacred path

Are you never fazed by people’s weird behaviour
Can you see through all the games played by the powers
Is your mouth the window to a soul of beauty
Do you bathe at least once every thirteen hours

(If you can answer yes
To the questions on this page
Then please may I express
My desire with you to engage)

Do you have the kind of face to wake up next to
Every morning, never losing the surprise
Are you shrouded in a cloud of golden mystery
Are you by my crazy ways electrified

If I stroke your skin will I swear that it’s velvet
Will your eyes be pools where I could drown my heart
Will I follow you because I just can’t help it
Do you have a sense of humour razor-sharp

Will we fit ourselves together like a jigsaw
Will I never want our hot embrace to end
If we ever (God forbid) have altercations
Will we quickly find a way to make amends

(If you can answer yes
To the questions on this page
Then please may I express
My desire with you to engage)

Can you put up with me if I need some cavetime
Would you love me even more when I’m a mess
Can you walk for ages without ever speaking
Will I be full of wonder when you dress

Is there something of the child left in your lifestyle
Is your soul so old, your inner thoughts so wise
Do you love to look at Venus, Mars and Saturn
In the moisty mistless April night-time skies

Can you see through every mask that I’ve invented
Will you gently smile each time I play defence
Do you like to kiss as if there’s no tomorrow
Live for the moment, no more future tense

(If you can answer yes
To the questions on this page
Then please may I express
My desire with you to engage)
