Metaphor for Our Love Affair

A compass looking for its star
the last tank of gas in a stolen car
a wild roller coaster ride
and the terror we both share
metaphor for our love affair

A faded sign pointing north or south
rolled eyes and twisted mouths
some days a flamethrower
some days a Fridgidaire
metaphor for our love affair

Is there a meaning we both can find
a canary for each soul's mine
should love be easy
must it be so hard
mornings warm and breezy
nights cold as a graveyard
and for every heartbeat mile between love and nowhere
a metaphor for our love affair

Business in the front, party in the back
is it lust or a plan of attack
if you'll be my Ginger Rogers
I'll be your Fred Astaire
metaphor for our love affair

You're as cautious as a speed limit sign
you say I'm reckless and unrefined
should love be kind
must it be so cruel
desires of a brilliant mind
destined to always play the fool
and for every time I get tangled up in your hair
a metaphor for our love affair

A compass showing true north
a full tank to take me to your door
a ride through the tunnel of love
and the moments we both share
metaphor for our love affair

Should our love be easy  
could our love be so rare
for every morning warm and breezy
a metaphor for our love affair

Metaphors for our love affair

You have such a beautiful mind and I love the way you weave your words.
