do for you, do for me

Sometimes
the lessons of life
come from teachers we don’t expect
Surprises,
gems in disguises,
teaching us things we can’t forget

Found love
I hadn’t heard of
but was glad she came my way
Reached me
started to teach me
And this is what she’d say:

She said “I don’t need you,
and I hope you don’t need me.
Not gonna count on you to be my everything.
But I’m going to love you
with a love that’s full and free.
Wanna know what I can do for you,
Not what you’re —
What you’re gonna do for me”

Seemed strange
Like an angel
Knowin just what she should do
Asked her
and the laughter
of her answer filled the room

She said “I don’t need you,
and I hope you don’t need me.
Not gonna count on you to be my everything.
But I’m going to love you
with a love that’s full and free.
Wanna know what I can do for you,
Not what you’re —
What you’re gonna do for me”

God-like
Yeah, that’s right
I saw love that’s just like His
Warm smiles
All the while
I deserved nothing as good as this

She said “I don’t need you,
and I hope you don’t need me.
Not gonna count on you to be my everything.
But I’m going to love you
with a love that’s full and free.
Wanna know what I can do for you,
Not what you’re —
What you’re gonna do for me”
