I’ve got a grip on life’s steering wheel
So not every time I’m asked do I kneel
I don’t let just anyone make me heel
I don’t let just anything make me squeal
Not everyone with appeal is real
I know when to say deal or no deal
Trust me, I don’t mind eating alone
I often prefer to be on my own
I either let my mind wander or get in my zone
And stick to my business like Al Capone
Sometimes I’ll put a ring on my left hand
When I’m tired of being ogled by your man
At times I’d like one of my own who understands the complex woman I am
Man, would he be a godsend
Until then I don’t have time to spin my wheels
I’m not into chasing boys, but this one is so real

I guess you could say I’m nothing but intrigued
But not many guys intrigue me
That’s why this is something to me
You’re one of few guys I’d like to call me
So why don’t we give this a try, just see?

But first, there’s a few things you should know about me
I’m more likely to use emojis than say those three little words
In this day and age, that’s just how the world turns
And if you get on my bad side
The cut of my eyes is something to survive
It’s nothing to push you to the side
Sometimes I’m like a coin you flip
I’m that and then I’m this
Don’t push me if I’m pissed
But I don’t keep a hit list
Unless it’s full of wishes, advice, love, truth, or kisses
Sometimes I won’t budge
But I never hold a real grudge
I’m too ambitious to waste energy and shit
If I have a goal, I always hit it
So if I’m focused, run for cover
Moving targets, I blow them over
I make my own luck, four-leaf clover
One last thing, most importantly
I’ll roam far and wide for someone worth keeping by my side
I’m such a lover, for that I’d fight
Now that we’ve got that out of the way
There are some other things I need to say

Right now I’m nothing but intrigued
But not many guys intrigue me
That’s why this is something to me
You’re one of few guys I’d like to call me
So why don’t we give this a try, just see? 

How far we’ll go, no one knows
But the path we go’s the one we chose
Everyone else can get their nose out of our business, maybe into a rose
But in our relationship is not where it goes
Not all scattered seeds grow
We’re both firmly planted in our own rows
Maybe this is something we should hoe
So tell your hoes to wait a minute
Because we’ve got unfinished business
Stopping now would be a disservice
Forgive me, sir, for my lip service
Or lack thereof, you make me nervous
I scratch through page after page and try not to curse
I can’t find the right words, let alone write a verse
No matter what I try to write, you come to mind first
Feelings I try to hide, you reverse
You hold me where I’m at, clutched purse
Am I cursed or is this the first thing with worth?

Maybe I’m nothing but intrigued
But not many guys intrigue me
That’s why this is something to me
You’re one of few guys I’d like to call me
So why don’t we give this a try, just see?

To tell the truth, which I promise to always do
Something I think you’re afraid to do is let someone truly know you
And let someone hold you when you’re through with the ruse of a heart warmest when cool
Please don’t play yourself
Don’t be the fool
And I’ll admit I need it too
I’m strong by myself but not afraid to lean on you
At least not anymore, not with the faith I have in you
I’m willing to admit—the one thing I’ve left to do—my missing puzzle piece might be shaped like you
But if it ends up not being true, that’s cool too
At least we gave it a try, had a little fun just living life
My fire’s burning like requited sparks ignited
I’m in flight with no landing in sight
Like Icarus up high, I hope we don’t take a dive
We’re two of a kind in our own way
Who cares if they say we’re flying blind?
And seem nothing alike in their eyes?
It could be just right, sugar and spice
But we’ll never know if you never say hi 

I don’t think I’m simply intrigued
But not many guys intrigue me
That’s why this is something to me
You’re one of few guys I’d like to call me
So why don’t we give this a try, just see?
