All I Want Is You

by Candice Ann Moraga

 

Remember the way we danced that night?

The way you looked in my eyes?

The way you let down your defenses – The way you dropped all disguise?

 

That is all I want from you – A moment in which we’re both REAL

No bullshit & no artifice – Something that we can both FEEL

 

I know that you’ve been hurt before – You act suspicious and wary

And I know we’re both freaked about falling – We both can admit that that’s scary

 

I’m not here to screw you over - And I don’t want to do you harm

So do you think it’s possible to break down defenses – Do you think that we can disarm?

 

I guess you just don’t want to snuggle – Maybe that’s just not your style

It’s been a long time since I’ve slept with a man – I told you that it’s been a while

 

But can we go back to when we connected – To when it just “clicked” & felt right?

And please don’t compare me to other women – That’ll only be picking a fight

 

Let’s go back to that special moment - When all your hopes rang true

Swaying in each other’s arms

“All I Want Is You”
