Taking hold of life

I see you looking back at me
What is it you think you see?
Are you the man to set me free?
Life is what you make it.

I see a man with cool dark eyes
I think you smile as disguise
Do you hide a great surprise
Life is what you make it

Your eyes are looking into mine
Not studying my body line
I start to see a little shine
My life is what you’ll make it

Can you see inside my mind
Pierce the screen I hide behind
Inside me what will you find
Will you take my life and shake it

Slowly though you look away
My mind is screaming stop and play
I never want to lose today
My life is yours please take it

On the table next to me
What’s on the paper that I see
The numbers that will set me free
Your phone number. I’ll take it!
