If You Want – Written Monday 20th October 1997 (Aged 22)

If You Want

if you want,
if you do,
ask me out
i would get out
if it were with you
if we just stopped
playing this game
playing drives me insane
never knowing what to do
i’m just kidding myself
i’m not what you want
i’m not somebody else
and that’s who you want
but if you want,
if you do,
ask me out
i am waiting here for you
maybe not you alone
but maybe, just maybe
who knows
