I Love You Because the Musical - ... But I Don't Want To Talk About Her Lyrics
I write poetry
I’m very romantic
Wait, I’m tough too
A romantic, tough guy
Yeah, sorta like Rock Hudson…
This one time, I wrote a poem for my ex-girlfriend
That’s the best thing I’ve ever read
And she reads poets, yet
Yates, Cummings, you name it
She’s got all these guys bouncing round her head
She sounds great
She has an insight that could win a Pulitzer Prize
There’s in genius in her mind that truly sparkles through her eyes
She’s so smart, to be near make’s your intelligence rise…
But, I don’t want to talk about her
So, uh, what do you do?
I’m a photographer.
Wow, okay. What kind of stuff do you do?
I try to capture the beauty of the human spirit.
Speaking of beauty, that reminds me of my ex-girlfriend
Oh, she was gorgeous, but she never really knew it
She had this smile, I swear to God
You were blessed if you had one chance to view it
She had a look that could inspire symphonies
Or cause the most stubborn men to have epiphanies
She was as enchanting as Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s…
But I don’t want to talk about her
So, you have an ex-girlfriend?
Ugh, I don’t want to talk about her.
Oh, right, sorry. There’s some things I don’t want to talk about either.
I don’t want to talk about the fact that I
Can’t seem to find a single guy
Who meets all my desires
That’s fine. Maybe we could talk about…
I don’t want to talk about how many men
Have claimed that they would be the one
And it turns out they’re all liars
I don’t want to talk about the day when I
Experimented with my girlfriend
And I almost came out
We can talk about that if you really want to.
But there’s always something missing
Now matter where I search
But, that’s not what I want to talk about
Oh, man… you’re kind of a whiner.
I’m sorry, but wasn’t it you who spent the first half of this conversation talking about your ex-girlfriend?
How dare you bring up the topic of my ex-girlfriend?!
Yeah, but you were the…. WHAT?!
Who is gorgeous and brilliant, by the way.
Yeah, I heard.
You know, I’m trying not to think about it and you throw it in my face?!
Now I’m all upset, and it’s the fifteenth time today
Less than I would’ve guessed.
I’m not the type who runs or hides
I follow my plan
Follow my guides
No matter how misguided they may be
I know we’ll be together
I don’t want to talk about her
