When you slid into the room
Everything else just disappeared
Taj Mahal sang "My Corrina"
So loud and so sincere
You were so, so sincere

Believe me when I tell you
That what went down was a one time deal
Over and over the things that we said
My Sweet Charade

I don't know what your situation is
I don't know if you have a guy
But I'm making up for younger days
And if I don't talk I just get shy
You were wearing baby blue, a charm school graduate
I was anything but charming, but you still got into it
There was nothing I could do

Believe me when I tell you
That what went down was a one time deal
Over and over the things that we said
My Sweet Charade

My desiring eyes, my pathetic resolve
The way I work through my lies, the way that my world revolves
Your black bra, I could see the lace
I could see the invitation written on your face

But believe me when I tell you
That what went down was a one time deal
Over and over the things that we did
My Sweet Charade

Maybe it's love, how would I know?
Every time I get close to it, I let it go
You could be different, you could be kind
But I'll never know cause I will leave you behind

    General CommentThis song sounds like someone who really does want to feel "love" but instead uses possible one-night stands to make up for his fear, until he finds her. It is almost a step in the right direction, because at least he is admitting of his faults of trying to be a hardass.
