Holding out for a hero…

February 11, 2010 at 3:16 am (Uncategorized)

Despite the heart-stopping fun I’ve been having recently while searching for a suitable mate, I think the time has come to take a break. For real this time. It’s just not working. And in the immortal words of Billy Joe, “You can’t go forcing something if it’s just not right…”

In all honesty, I can deal with the rejection, disappointment and frustration. I teach high school after all–I’m well versed in those areas. But what I have realized is that I don’t want to settle. And I could have already. Thank god I didn’t! I could try to come up with an eloquent description of what I’m looking for…but what I want isn’t a “thing,” it’s a feeling.

So, with all due props given to Uncle Kracker, here is what I want, and will wait for…possibly for eternity, but a lady’s got to have standards!

SMILE

You’re better than the best
I’m lucky just to linger in your light
Cooler than the flipside of my pillow, that’s right
Completely unaware
Nothin’ can compare to where you send me
Lets me know that it’s okay, yeah it’s okay
And the moments when my good times start to fade

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed
Sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head
Spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night

You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh you make me smile

Even when you’re gone
Somehow you come along just like a flower
Poking through the sidewalk crack
And just like that, you steal away the rain
And just like that

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed
Sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head
Spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night

You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh you make me smile

Don’t know how I lived without you
‘Cause every time that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile

You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed
Sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head
Spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night

You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh you make me smile

(Oh you make me smile) oh you make me smile
(Oh you make me smile) oh you make me smile
