Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. —Henry Fielding

Want

I don't want to make it rain. I just want to make it simple.
I don't want to see the light. I just want to see the flashlight.
I don't want to know the answers to any of your questions.
I don't want, no I really don't want to be John Lennon
Or Leonard Cohen.
I just want to be my dad with a slight sprinkling of my mother
And work at the family store and take orders from the counter.
I don't want to know the answers to any of your questions.
I don't want, no I really don't want to be John Lithgow
Or Jane Curtin.
But I'll settle for love.
