A flirty smile, that just your guile?
A brushing arm, your wicked charm?
A warm embrace, your hidden face?
A gentle sigh, just one more lie?
You fill my dreams, you're all I see,
Do you know what you do to me?
A yes or no that would be great,
As long as you just tell it straight.
A private wink, what should I think?
The words you spoke, were they a joke?
A sideways glance, a merry dance?
You say my name, is it a game?
You say these things, with love enthused,
And still you leave me so confused,
You've left my mind in this poor state,
Now will you please just tell it straight.
