Oh, if only

Wanting and needing
Longing and lingering
Just to see your face
Your lips on mine to taste
Oh, if only you were better...

Your touch is so unsure
That heart and soul so pure
Wishing you were more like me
Some swagger for me to see
Oh, if only you were taught 
better...

Burning so with desire
What's inside me like a fire
Knowing you have feelings too
But your lovers have been too 
few
Oh, if only you were a lot 
better...

So sorry, don't mean to be rude
Maybe you think I'm a bit lewd
But a writers passion can burn 
so bright 
We need a kindred spirit to turn 
on that light
Oh, if only you were so much 
better...

You reach for me with 
uncertainty
This kind of thing does nothing 
for me
You wonder why I pull away 
Your inexperience I'd have to 
say
Oh, if only you were something 
better...

You and I just don't fit
I blow out the candle that I lit
My muse you cannot be
No confidence for me to see
Oh, if only you knew pleasure 
better...

Maybe it is your age 
I can't even fill a page
I'm not the one to teach you 
love
This patience I'm not made of
Oh, if only...
