Please forgive me if I'm out of line
I was hoping you might want to hang out sometime
your status I don't know for sure
though I feel a bit shy, you I'm going for
I don't normally do this at all
but you seem like the kind of girl I'd like to call

And if things are kosher with you
maybe we could end up into
something so right
we could be close
and I'm willing to take a shot
because...

I'm getting back on track
but I'm not looking for a rebound
if you let me I would have your back
because I want to be around... you

So just let me be brazen and true
I could honestly use another signal from you
but you look so damn good to me now
I need all the restraints my mind will allow

And if things are kosher with you
maybe we will end up into
I could be wrong
but I could be close
and I'm willing to take that chance
because...

I'm getting back on track
but I'm not looking for a rebound
if you let me I would have your back
'cause I just want to be around
if you wanted me to say the truth
I wouldn't hesitate to tell you
when you're finished with the burden of proof
you don't have to go through
anything else, all by yourself
let me be the one that you hold onto...

'Cause I'm getting back on track
but I'm not looking for a rebound
if you let me I would have your back
'cause I just want to be around... just around... you

Background:
Music: hmmmm. nice tempo changes in the verses and bridge. chorus is kinda wack. short, around 3 minutes flat.
Lyrics: Written about a girl (well, really written *to* her), in one day (actually about 6 hours), without a guitar nearby. And almost unintentionally. Installment #1 of the "Rosetti Trilogy".
