First Brush

At first brush
Didn't know me well enough
I was trying to get my message across
I was nervous
You noticed
You didn't show it

I don't know why I chose not to follow my gut
I don't know where my heart got stuck
Lost in the panic of urgency
But you already knew this

A man is seldom better than his words
So let them be heard

Don't you get it
This isn't serious
On a tight rope we'll sway in the dark
Keep your composure for the night

Haven't I had enough
I'm happy to neither know nor care
with recklessness I have been blessed
You don't need to know this
