Once More With Feeling
Is it all in my mind,
Were you only being kind.
Even though you did it all with such finesse.
Was it me or was it you,
Does it really matter who.
Just so long as we can do it all again.
Let my diary entry show,
That you wouldn't let me go.
I was leaving but you kept a hold on me.
I was heading for the door,
Now I'm yours forever more.
All because of how you did that thing to me.
The danger signs were flashing red,
I wouldn't hear a word you said.
I didn't want to stay another minute.
You'd hurled your coffee cup and missed,
I'd smashed our picture with my fist.
There was nothing left to say except goodbye.
But as I fumbled with my key,
You stepped between the door and me.
You gave that look that said a million things.
You shook your head in silent calm,
And placed your hand upon my arm.
And then you showed me what true love's about.
You're ribboned hair shook loose and tumbled,
My desire to leave just crumbled.
Making up had never been so sweet.
You calmed the savage beast inside,
My anger disappeared and died,
You did it all with such delightful skill.
I never realised before,
That no one ever loved me more.
And I had nearly thrown it all away.
I'm sorry if I caused you pain,
I'll never say those things again.
Just do that loving to me one more time.
I was sure that we were through,
But you had other plans.
You never gave an inch and now I'm glad.
You fought to keep our love alive,
And now the wounds are healing.
Let's take it from the top again.
Just one more time with feeling.
