“NOW I LIKE YOU” by Alexis Rhone Fancher

Fancher & Alexis

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.

I choose you in spite of my previous bad choices.
I choose you because you’re not my type.
I choose you although you make a good living.
I choose you because you’re not James Dean.

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.

I choose you although you are kind and mature.
I choose you although you won’t forget my birthday.
I choose you although you won’t betray me.
I choose you although you won’t break my heart.

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.

I choose you now that drummers have lost their allure.
I choose you now after two false starts.
I choose you now that I’ve finally come to my senses.
I choose you, and not a moment too soon.

I used to like bad boys
but now I like you.

I choose you to finish my sentences.
I choose you to be my partner in crime.
I choose you to be my nights’ companion.
I choose you till the end of time.

I used to like bad boys,
but now I like you.

    I like the way you say it, why it’s so true I don’t know… if it didn’t go like this maybe women would settle down too soon… this way we’re more evenly matched with the men! 🙂

    life brings what is true
    when we surrender all
    to the fates and the knowing
    that what has gone behind us
    laid each a stone on our our journey to the beauty
    of this moment…
    life unfolding as it is
    in the sweetness of allowing..
    well, now i like you too,
    Alexis
    jewel lying along the coast
    your tides move us all.
    thank you for the joy of your self expressions
    you contain us all
    with respect

    Well . . . no more Mack the Knife for you, eh? Why does it take us so long to come to this so-wonderful point? Who cares? You’re both there, and that’s what matters. Salud! And much love.
