Chivalry

 

For Megan

 

All my life I've been a hopeless romantic

Sucks to be me

All I ever got was broken hearts

Still what you are is what you gotta be

 

And then I met a dark-eyed girl

A princess of the night

And every piece of ancient shrapnel from my heart

Says I should run in fright

 

But I am not afraid

Instinctively I  trust my lady

You bring out my natural chivalry

You bring out the prince charming in me

 

Dark maiden with your shy smile

I wish to be your shining armor knight

I think you deserve to be treated like a princess

Tonight, and every night

 

We live our lives embracing fantasy

And when you touched my hand

I realized I felt something

too intense to understand

 

So maybe all I've ever known

says I should run and hide

but I cannot run from you

With a whisper, you've crawled inside

 

If I'm over the top please forgive me

I guess it's just who I am

a hopeless romantic into chivalry

My lady, your perfect gentle man
