A Lick And A Promise

by Nevada Kerr

All I want is a temporary fix
A quick reprieve and then I'll leave
I'm not looking for a permanent lover
Just a grope and fumble undercover

I don't want to grow to love you
Please don't get me wrong
When should I go, give me a clue
No need to come on strong

Show me how and where to yield
I want it bad enough to squeal
Never settled for safe, I assure you that
A pat on the back and I'm feeling trapped

What makes you come makes me run
Don't come too close, I've got a gun
Sweetheart even if you take a number
This stone cold heart can only slumber
