Let’s Be Lovers
©2016, Otis G. Fondo

Well I saw her at the bar, she was sipping on a beer
She was with another guy, who hardly noticed her
She looked up from her phone, and she glanced across at me
She was speaking with her eyes, I could hear her say - she said:

I need a lover, you need a lover
We need each other, let’s be lovers, lovers
In the morning time, In the evening too
All afternoon, any time, any time any time will do

I felt a little lonely, so I reached for my device
I got a thousand friends, when a million would suffice
It goes down in the DM, that’s what the rapper says
You only text “hello,” I can clearly hear you say - you say

I need a lover, you need a lover
We need each other, let’s be lovers, lovers
In the morning time, In the evening too
All afternoon, any time, any time any time will do

I stepped into the church, to listen to the word
The preacher spoke of Jesus, and the people that he cured
The walls began to crumble and the lines began to blur
When I went up for my blessing and you whispered in my ear – you said:

I need a lover, you need a lover
We need each other, let’s be lovers, lovers
In the morning time, In the evening too
All afternoon, any time, any time any time will do

I woke up hungover, so I turned on the tv
The newscaster man, he did a double take at me
With a twinkle in his eye, he set his story free
And with his papers raining down, he got down on his knees – he said:

I need a lover, you need a lover
We need each other, let’s be lovers, lovers
In the morning time, In the evening too
All afternoon, any time, any time any time will do

Let’s be lovers, Let’s be lovers, let’s be lovers let’s be lovers…
