Don’t Wanna be no Rooster

 

By D Phoenix

 

The tears that I’m crying

There just falling on the tears

That I cried the night before

It seems where love is concerned

my heart has become

Just a revolving open door

 

Am I looking for love that’s too deep

Or just scratching the surface of my heart

For every time I think I’ve got it right

That’s when my life begins to fall apart

 

Am I looking too hard

Am I jumping in with both eyes shut

Am I showing no signs of hesitation?

Am I trying so hard

That people can read me like a book

They can see through my desperation

 

Am I getting like that rooster

As it’s calling from the farmyard

A song of cockle doodle do

Well I can hear all the whispers

The tongues that are wagging

That any old cock will do

 

Well I don’t want to be no rooster

Just a love bird in her nest

And have some one say I’m beautiful

Even if I’m not feeling at my best

I just want some one to comfort me

And understand my foolish ways

To hold me tight, to keep me warm

To help me count the blessings through the days

 

I am dreaming on my own

While sleeping on an empty bed

A lonely shadow on a wall

Is it love that I am craving

Or just some one to be there

To save me from when I fall

 

Am I trying to hard

Am I sending out the wrong signals

Attracting the wrong sort of men

Am I trying so hard

That I know I shouldn’t go there

But I know I will be there agen

 

Am I getting like that rooster

As it’s calling from the farmyard

A song of cockle doodle do

Well I can hear all the whispers

The tongues that are wagging

That any old cock will do

 

Well I don’t want to be no rooster

Just a love bird in her nest

And have some one say I’m beautiful

Even if I’m not feeling at my best

I just want some one to comfort me

And understand my foolish ways

To hold me tight, to keep me warm

To help me count the blessings through the days
