“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.
