Whats it like to be like you,
With all those heads turning
In the sea of envy you sail through,
Spreading waves of yearning?
I cant rise above it all, alas.
I want you, too; Im sure thats clear as glass.
Im not that easy, but youre irresistible.
Is it like a siege to be
Pinned by all those eyes?
With relentless scrutiny,
Top to toe, they fantasize.
Even the blind swoon when they smell you,
But none of us would ever dare to tell you.
It cant be easy to be irresistible.
Theres a certain luxury
In feeling it can never be.
All of us around you glow
With the knowledge that well never know your touch
Wanting it so much
But fearing it would take us too high, then
Wed never get back home again.
Hows it feel to stop and stare
At the throng before you,
And know that if you spot your equal there,
They already adore you?
Or is it better when theyre uglier than you,
So that theyre not only willing, but kind of grateful too?
If thatll do, I find you irresistible.
