You asked me if this is the beginning of the end
The end of what started off as friends with no strings attached
With no freak attacks of anxiety by either party
And whether the feelings you were feeling that you couldn't name
You could blame
On us being at the beginning of the end
You asked me this and thus I felt the obligation, the inspiration to fuss over that question
I should mention that I have no crystal ball, my palm reading is limited and I have no tea leaves
So that leaves me with my intuition and my perspective
to put to this question of our respective futures in this relationship
And I gotta say...
I don't know what the beginning of the end looks like, don't flip
It could look like this or something quite different
But what I can say, most definitively, is that I am not at all indifferent to this question
It has sat in my gut alllllll day giving me indigestion
And I feel very secure in saying this: that were this the beginning of the end, my dear girlfriend
Your question would not be bothering me so intensely or maybe even ever so slightly.
I think the fact that I care so much about us staying in touch with each other
Is a testament to the fact that I am at the beginning of no ending
I am still in the beginning of the beginning
Lest you forget that I'm not looking to get comfortable
Or to get used to you
Or to take you for granted
Or to - what - treat you with any less respect than you deserve.
Serve me "l'amuse" please, 'cause I haven't even gotten to appetizers yet
I'm not looking over entrees
And I certainly couldn't care less about dessert...
So no, we're not at the beginning of the end here
I'm thinking it's going to take a good couple or three decades to get there -
And that's just to get to the beginning of what could be some kind of end
Which could be the beginning of another kind of beginning
As we recommit ourselves to each other
Day by Day
Week by Week
Month by Month
Year by Year
My, oh, my how these sound like vows.
You my dear one, you keep with your worries
It's good. They keep me on my feet.
And when you get comfortable
We'll know we've hit a spot so sweet.
