I Didn't Know

by Y. M. Roger

Lyrical Poem Contest Winner 
The author has placed a warning on this post for language.

        I didn’t know the day that you walked in
           with that sexy bod and that cocky grin.
        I didn‘t know the room'd become too small
           for the two of us, but I do recall…

 
[CHORUS]
        That I –
          – asked your name and you raised that brow,
               wond’rin’ who the hell I thought
 
              that  I  was  anyhow…
        Undeterred, I took another step in,
  
             met that brow with a smirk,
  
       
     and I asked you again.
 

        I didn’t know how much a touch could burn
           how a kiss could brand, but I shortly learned
        I didn’t know the feel of fire* on ice
 
         or that passion’s cost was so high a price…

 
[CHORUS]
        When you –
 
        – asked my name and I raised my brow,
 
              wond’rin’ who the hell you thought
 
              that  you  were  anyhow…
        Undeterred, you took another step in,
  
             met my brow with that smirk,
 
       
      and you asked me again.
 

        I didn’t know how damn hard I could fall,
           how your vexing air could my heart enthrall
        I didn’t know it’d hurt to walk away
 
          how you’d changed my life that very first day…

 
[CHORUS]
        When I –
 
        – asked your name and you raised that brow,
 
              wond’rin’ who the hell I thought
  
             that I was anyhow
        Undeterred, I took another step in,
   
            met that brow with a smirk…
   
       
    Yeah, I shoulda known then.**
 

        I didn’t know that you had won my soul,
           how you’d become home and you’d make me whole
        I didn’t know then, babe, but hear this vow:
 
          I’ll remind you ev’ry day
   
            I sure as hell know now!
 
[Repeat chorus as desired]

*fire is pronounced with one syllable here.

**if I were actually writing the music here, I place a guitar solo here before the final verse.....but that's just me! :) ;)

Sorry, I cannot provide the rock band folks, but insert your favorite group with strong lead and give yourself a few moments... you'll be able to hear it booming through your mind's sound system! :) Thank you for indulging me! :) ;)
