Before I did, he knew me
He knew who I could be
That’s why he’ll push me
When they try to shush me
So many options
But he’s who intrigues me
He sees straight through me
But won’t misconstrue me
Just uproots me, moves me, waters, watches me grow
Fills me up, then he lets me flow
Builds me up to watch me glow

Will he be my Romeo
But keep me by his side
Everybody tells us no
But it could save our lives

I’ll whisk him off to Wonderland
He’ll fly me out to Neverland
Speaking different languages
Our own wavelengths, no Spanglish
We both know we want this
A little change is all it is

He always handles me with care
Lights candles, strokes my hair
He needs someone to understand
How to cater to a man
Ride out loud for each other
Not just friends, some kind of lovers
Play fightin’, lacy covers
Moonlightin’, undercover
He tries to hide, says beware
But I want the man under there
Under that exterior
Under ink, under clothes, under where
I see the man God sees, no mirror

Come on, be my Romeo
We’ll run away at night
Where you’ll go, I’ll go
We’ll make it out alive

I’ll whisk him off to Wonderland
He’ll fly me out to Neverland
Speaking different languages
Our own wavelengths, no Spanglish
We both know we could do this
A little change is all it is

Sought a song with perfect words
Then it occurred in a blur
It was the first time I’d written since leavin’
I won’t say I was smitten, just cheesin’
Gave me something to believe in, pre-season
The reason: without love, life’s anguish
So let’s just arrange this, entertain this
Great, big world with the love we’re creating
It has been waiting for someone, for something
To shake things up, earthquake things, cut
Puppet strings, lump sum things up
So what is up other than this challenge?
No ice, no bucket, nothing but passion

Will you be my Romeo
Juliet’s down alright
Who will tell us no
’03 Bonnie and Clyde
