My Romance Is Not a Part Time Job


My romance is not hard or odd.
Since I've got it to give.
It's here for you...
And it lives.

My romance is not a part time job.
Full time!
You-are-on-my-mind.

You've got to know...
My romance is not hard or odd.
You've got to know...
My romance is not a part time job.
You've got to know...
I'll sweat.
Because I can't let you go!

My romance is not a part time job.
And I'll sweat.
Because I can't let you go!

My romance is not hard or odd.
My romance is not a part time job.
My romance is coming from my heart.
And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

My romance is not hard or odd.
My romance is not a part time job.
My romance is coming from my heart.
And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

And I'll sweat!
Since I can't let you go!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
