"As Lovers Go" as written by and Christopher Andrew Carrabba....
She said, "I've got to be honest, you're wasting your time if you're fishin' around here."
And I said, "You must be mistaken, I'm not foolin' this feelin' is real."
She said, "You've got to be crazy! What do you take me for? Some kind of easy mark?"

"No, you've got wits, you've got looks, you've got passion, but I swear that you've got me all wrong."
I'll be true, I'll be useful, I'll be cavalier, I'll be yours my dear,
I'll belong to you if you just let me through.

This is easy as lovers go so don't complicate it by hesitating.
This is wonderful as loving goes.
This is tailor-made, what's the sense in waiting?

I said, "I've got to be honest, I've been waiting for you all my life."
For so long I thought I was asylum bound, but just seeing you makes me think twice.
And being with you here makes me sane. I fear I'll go crazy if you leave my side.

"You've got wits, you've got looks, you've got passion,
but are you brave enough to leave with me tonight?"

    General Commentthis is a fabulous song...just one thing about the lyrics: in the version i have of the song, it sounds like "this is tailor made" instead of "this is telling me"....i don't know if it's just inflection or those are the right words.
