Choice Of Freedom

It’s cool and neat and awesome when you stand in close to me
But there’s nothing like a one-horse town if that’s where you should be
Will you show me all your hidden talents, all your treasures too?
Am I wrong? Am I wrong? Am I wrong?
You’re scratching at the finger where your wedding band should be
I’d give a penny for your thoughts, are they thoughts of me?
When you ask me how I’m doing, ask me where I’ve been
I get scared, I get scared, I get scared

Are you really all that you’re cracked up to be
Or is it wishful thinking?
Are you really the kid who has it all
Or is it choice not freedom?

Gets me so excited when I smell you on my sheets
Perfume and tobacco seem to bring me to my knees
Somehow they lower my resistance, they can’t stop the clock
Will you stay? Will you go?
These are just the best times when there’s laughter in our bed
And I pick up on the tenderness in every kiss you give
Wonder is there more to you than gentle, needed sex?
Do you think? Do you think? Do you care?

Are you really all that you’re cracked up to be
Or is it wishful thinking?
Are you really the kid who has it all
Or is it choice not freedom?

It’s cool and neat and awesome when there’s laughter in our bed
