Great Expectations of a Perfect Man


Great Expectations of a Perfect Man (or I’ve Always Been Right)
You confused me in a positive way,
I said things I don’t normally say,
I dressed differently than I usually do,
Because I was sure I loved you,
I bought things I normally wouldn’t buy,
But that big diamond sure made you cry,
I went on a honeymoon to Timbuktu,
Because I was sure I loved you,
I didn’t listen to what others said,
I believed you were perfect instead,
Now I find myself in such a stew,
Because I was sure I loved you,
I thought you could fill all my needs,
A beautiful garden without any weeds,
You’d focus on me with all you do,
Because I was sure I loved you,
Temporary insanity is all I can say,
You’re different than I thought in every way,
You’re unreasonable and have problems, yes you do,
And I’m not sure why I loved you,
I’ll find someone who doesn’t upset me too much,
Who follows my rules and listens and such,
And does all the things women are supposed to do,
I’m not sure why I loved you,
You’re a hard-headed woman and other names,
Often we disagree and you’re to blame,
I’ve always been right in all that I do,
And I’m not sure why I loved you,
”My baggage, what baggage?” I ask with a smirk,
“In my last three relationships I wasn’t a jerk,
My girlfriends suddenly decided to fly,
I loved them all fiercely, but I don’t know why,
They wanted to love me freely at will,
But I had high expectations of them still,
I wanted them to be perfect in every way,
But they disappointed me badly every day.”
Love should have been different because of you,
I’ve always been right in all that I do.
