SWEET BLUE MADAM

Let me explain it to you, Lorelei.
I’m just an average guy.
A blue collar man working
long nights. Sure, I can be a
renegade at times, but I’m not
the angry young man! If you believe
that, you’re fooling yourself.
I haven’t slept since your “Dear John”
letter. It’s better if I get this off my chest.
Your beauty had me snow blind,
I’m seeing Miss America when I look
your way. I could sing for the day
I first saw you! It might have been
love at first sight; it might have been
the grand illusion. Either way, I’ve believed.
You lit up my world and curled me
around your finger. And your heart lingers.
Show me the way. I have too much time
on my hands and these are the times
it takes love. Let you and me just be!
Come sail away, or kiss (your ass) me goodbye.
