BEST BEGINNING

The best beginning, I’d have to imagine, is any kind
See, I’ve never had one before, but more to the point, I want you to be mine

The rest is in me, I’ve come to understand, but so sheltered
I’ve been burned, but somewhere out there has got to be less hurt

I must be the problem, yes?
‘Cause I have never changed so I can’t be the solution
Perhaps I am nothing anyone could ever want
Do I talk too much? Is my tone not sincere?
Perhaps I lost the right touch somewhere along the way
But, how the hell did I get here?

I am cold in my own bed, I have never known warmth
Could there be a wet, one-day lover out there who doesn’t want to weather this storm?
Please know I would never wish weakness in the dark or the rain
But I can be your strength

I’m trying to think of a new word for lonely, but I still have nothing
Everyone in their right mind has nothing left to give
Me? Who knows what I am capable of?
No woman has ever known if the man I can be is enough

So I must be the problem, yes?
‘Cause I have never changed so I can’t be the solution
Perhaps I am nothing anyone could ever want
Do I talk too much? Is my tone not sincere?
Perhaps I lost the right touch somewhere along the way
But, how the hell did I get here?

I’ve grown up in only two homes in the same town
I’m not the kind of man who’s gonna lift you up just to bring you back down
I want you to be able to see everywhere I have come from to be me
I want, for us, the best beginning

The best beginning, I’d have to imagine, is any kind
See, I’ve never had one before, but more to the point, I want you to be mine
