Once I had feelings for Ruby,
But she went away, One day.
Ruby woke up on a Tuesday,
With nothing to say, To me,
But:

You've been your own best friend for far
too long,
So open up and let me in,
Or better still, Come on!
Let's take a walk
Out in the world.
I'll just be a boy.
You just be a girl.
Better still,
Can't We Just Be Friends?

I'm not wasting any time,
But I'm not rushing this.
I'm not making any demands,
But I would like a little kiss.

You've been your own worst enemy
all along.
Whoever said 'Love means never having to say you're sorry'
was wrong.
Let's take a walk on down the street.
Just let the music come to your feet.
Better still
Can't We Just Be Friends?

This is another of four Sister Songs, all begun the same night. As inspiration and craft failed me I left each one to work on the next, playing them and finding my way through. This copyright date may be when I finally put this one into 'fixed form,' thereby activating my 'right' to 'copy' it, my copyright. The others were "Number On The Wall," April 8; "Cajun Lady" March 21; and "Everybody Knows (Nothin' Like You)" March 24. I don't like to write them down until they're finished in my head. It keeps them fluid, changeable, malleable to the nuances of a new muse as she unveils the spices of her tale.
