She

My soon to be 18 year old son wrote some lyrics to a song. Other than having a mom, he's always been surrounded by mounds of guy-ness. In the last year the Lord has blessed him with 2 soon-to-be sisters. (His 2 big brothers are both getting married this summer.) Perhaps it's his age, (after all, teenagers think they know everything) ...perhaps the new sisters...whatever the reasoning, my son's suddenly become an expert on the female psyche. And, as much as I hate to admit it, he's got us pegged. I thought it would be fun to share this with you so, with my son's permission, here it is.
(He almost sounds as if he's speaking from experience, and he mentions "being in love"....I just may have to have a chat with that boy....)



She wants me to know her mind but not what she's thinking about
She wants to be a mystery but still interpretable some how
If she cuts two hairs from her pretty head I should know it
She wants to go out but she wants me to suggest that we go
She wants to be comforted yet she wants her space
She spends hours in the bathroom working on her face
(And then she comes up and tells me to hurry)

I'm not psychic that is plain
All this guessing drives me insane
She makes the sun shine in the rain
But being in love is truly insane

The difference between talking and listening is death
How to say good morning I haven't figured out yet
When I want to get some sleep she wants to talk
I don't know when she wants to be a lady and when not
She goes shopping and tells me all hundred things she got
The silent treatment makes me ask what did I do?
"Well if you don't know then I'm not going to tell you."

I'm not psychic that is plain
All this guessing drives me insane
She makes the sun shine in the rain
But being in love is truly insane

She refuses to believe I can think about nothing
I answer honestly but she thinks I'm bluffing
She doesn't know why I like to watch her fix her hair
She wants to know what I'm thinking when I stare
But she is who she is so I'll enjoy who she is for who she is
But she is who she is so I'll enjoy who she is for who she is

Oh yes, I'm not psychic that is plain
And all of this guessing drives me insane
She can make the sun shin in the rain
But being in love is completely insane
