No Such Thing
© 2016 John Voorpostel



I hope sheís not contagious in those form fitting jeans
Iíd really like to show her what Iíve got up my sleeve
But I fear Iíll get addicted, itís a terrible sickness
Leaving her alone's a pound of cure


She could feel really good and I know that I will mend
So a little here and there maybe a little more again
But never more than minutes Ďcause I know Iíll be afflicted
With a struggling goodbye, Iím pretty sure


Thereís no such thing as easy loving
No such thing as an easy fling
No such thing as easy loving
No such thing


Baby can you help me there nothing I can do
Maybe you can meet me at a quarter to two
I think I have the power to hang on for half an hour
And have a little left to find the door


Thereís no such thing as easy loving
No such thing as an easy fling
No such thing as easy loving
No such thing


Was speaking to my friend Miguel
He poured me out a drink
He agreed, love ainít easy
Itís how he makes his living


Thereís no such thing as easy loving
No such thing as an easy fling
No such thing as easy loving
No such thing


If writing ever becomes work I think I'm going to have to stop

"But I fear Iíll get addicted, itís a terrible sickness"

A lot of us are addicted. I am 70 and still fantasize about girls from high school. But in my fantasies, they look like they did back then, not the way they look now.

Hi John,

I can hear Bruno Mars singing this!

It's playful and with those rhymes in the chorus it gathers up a nice rhythm. You might even want another "No such thing" once that momentum gets going.

One thing jumped out at me: "Leaving her behind's"...I paused at "behind" because I thought she was new to him? That word might be working, but if she's contagious, maybe he wants to be leaving her alone, ya know? smile I don't know, just a thought.

Anyway, I like "addicted/sickness" rhyme too.

Kristi


A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write,
if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be,
he must be. -- Abraham Maslow, American Psychologist

Thank you for that Jim...we all look back at those and see them for who they were.

What's really interesting is seeing them again after many years. Been through a cycle of 60 year old birthday parties in the last two years as I've turned that clock...and so I have actually seen a number of people from back then.

Absolutely shocking in some cases and it's a spectrum. A few on either side who are either still amazing or incredibly "weathered" and a large middle ground that looks largely the same except yuk yuk larger and greyer.

But yeah, the mind is still fertile ground smile

Dead on Kristi...and gives me a nice line

Changed to "alone is a pound of cure" to allude to the "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" saying.

Thank you!

T'is that Travis. And I think we all have an addiction of sorts... some are more harmful that others.
