"Awkward Lover"   

Check out The RooTsters' new album, "Merge"!

Regular guys deserve love, too! The basics of this song buzzed around in my head for years, afraid to come out because they didn't fit into my preconceived notions of what I should sound like (whatever that might be). Once I dropped that stupid attitude and stopped "shoulding" all over myself, a nice 32-bar classic jazz tune walked right out and began to sing.

Listen to a song clip.

There are so many reasons to resist all my impulses into love.
But, despite me, my heart insists on wanting you. It hurts me so.
 
Talk to me truly about your thoughts and feelings.
You only let me in so far.
I never know which way your winds are blowing;
I want to know your heart
 
Talk to me truly about your aspirations,
I promise not to mock you.
I'll never be one to shatter your dreams;
I want to be your rock.
 
There is no way I ever can explain my indecisions about you.
O, my Love, can't you see my pain? I want you - don't you want me, too?
 
I'm an awkward lover, may not look like much, but
I am so hungry for your touch.
Feel my desire, kiss my eyes,
Take me to paradise.
 
There are so many reasons to resist all my impulses into love.

I'm an awkward lover, may not look like much, but
I am so hungry for your touch.
Feel my desire, kiss my eyes,
Take me to paradise;
Take me to paradise;
Take me to paradise.
