Well, there're two ways I can say this. 
And one would be: f*ck you! 
And there're no two ways around it, because one would be untrue. 
Because I love everything about you. 
But I don't want to be around you. 
If you control my heart will you control my brain? 
If I give in to you, will it still feel the same? 
'Cause I want nothing more than to be here with you. 
If you fulfill my dreams, will that fulfill you too? 
I need a second. I need a second to think. 
Now, the other way to play this would be mellow, light, and, cool. 
Poetry and meditation. Higher ground and higher truth. 
Because I love everything about you. 
But I use everything to doubt you. 
If you control my heart will you control my brain? 
If I give in to you, will it still feel the same? 
'Cause I want nothing more that to be here with you. 
If you fulfill my dreams, will that fulfill you too? 
I need a second. I need a second to think. 
I found the spot where truth echoes and know each beauty mark by heart. 
But I just can't keep her still enough to render perfect art. 
'Cause the truth is ever changing and although she loves my touch, 
I've had my way, but I when I pray, she kisses back too much. 
And it's hard to feel real gangster when you're always getting kissed. 
But you jump at every pucker, 'cause your fear of getting dissed. 
I try not to fight the parts of me that want to kiss her back. 
Egos should be illegal. Mine just don't know how to act. 
He tells me I don't need her. I should walk this path alone. 
She's make believe. She's up my sleeve. I'd do better with a clone. 
But could it be? It seems to me that she's my other half. 
My inner-tarzan monkey girl, raised mainly by giraffes. 
And besides she makes me laugh. 
But deeper down, I'm just a clown starting bar room brawls with cupid, like, 
"F*ck that naked baby angel, yo!
And gimme 2 more buttery nipples". 
And God just re-invents herself as ice-cubes in my ripple.
