Sincerity ©Martin Kerr 2006
All I wanted was your sincerity
And all I needed was you to be true to me,
But let’s let it go now, let it go now…
I held your hand for ten seconds,
You said you felt it all week.
Kisses weren’t planned,
But such beauty beckoned my lips to your cheek.
I didn’t know what I wanted.
You needed someone who did.
There were some questions we never confronted,
We turned our tails and hid…
You told me all of your heartaches
That very evening we met.
Now and again thinking back to the start
Makes me weep, but I won’t regret you.
