My Better Half

An attempt at light, airy lyrics. Hum it to any tune you please, then let me know if it makes you smile 🙂

I was passing by O’Grady’s
When you saw me in your glass
You smiled without turning
And I skipped a little dance
You pretended not to notice
But you still laughed anyway
And I made myself a promise
To pass there every day

In the hope that I would see you smile
In the hope I’d hear your laugh
It’s the hope of one of two of us
That you’ll be my better half

When I find myself alone
I look around for you
I peek around the corners
For the slightest glimpse of you
Although I never see you
I catch the faintest scent
The perfume that you’re wearing
Just makes my poor heart sweat

In the hope that I will see you smile
In the hope I’ll hear your laugh
It’s the hope of one of two of us
That I find my better half

I tear up when I see you
I get high when you’re around
My heart stops when you kiss me
My pulse beats so very loud
I cannot get enough of you
You tease me with your eyes
It’s only that we’re so in love
You’ve made me realize

It’s the hope of one of two of us
For you are my better half
Just once you’ll skip into a dance
And smile when I laugh.
