Until I fall in love again, Im not gonna do it.
Im telling you, my friend, so youll hold me to it.
Dont let me fall just in lust, then regret it in the morning.
Before I slip away, you must whisper me a warning.
Say: Hold on. You were determined to abstain.
Say: Dont go. The really cute ones are all insane.
Cant you foresee whatll happen if you dont heed me?
Theres something to be said for dating, and the trial fling,
But Ive got it in my head that mating is an entirely different thing.
If Im always on the circuit, hungry, hunting for a better deal,
I might not spot the quiet one among the angels who can offer something real.
So Ill hold on. The flashy types dont like me anyway.
And I wont go. Online or in the flesh, they seem to say,
Touch, but dont look. The face you want is in a different book.
Any color, shape or age will do; he can be a her.
Theres no one Im not open to, should the miracle occur.
The wonderment is what I miss, more than the release.
Its the mystical side of the kiss that brings me peace.
These bars dont offer that,
And as a player, I tend to fall flat anyway.
I swear, I wont do it again, on my life, till my hearts on the line.
Ill hold out for a husband or a wife, for a rapport like yours and mine.
So I beg you, stop the nightmare, dont let me send over a drink
To that third one on the right there Turkish, I think
Say: Hold on. Your self-control will persevere.
Say: Dont go. You know your soulmate is standing here,
Holding your arm, and sworn to keep you safe from harm.
