The City Mouse and The Country Mouse

I feel like I’ve known you so long 
And I feel like I could tell you anything 
But there is one thing I cannot say to you 
That I want you, need you, love you 
We talk and I laugh and smile 
But deep down inside, 
Bubbling to the surface 
There are words at the back of my throat 
Dying to get out 
That though I know we both have our flaws
And imperfections, I know our hands would fit 
Perfectly together and I have a feeling 
You can dance really well 
And that you’d be one of the few 
That I can really be me around 
“But every time I tried to tell you 
The words just came out wrong”
And our pasts just don’t permit us 
To be together anyway 
Not that I had a chance to be 
Worthy of all that you have to offer 
Because you’re a Harvard man 
And I’m a small town girl 
And I know you don’t feel that way 
But I don’t belong in your world 
Of aristocrats and dinner parties 
And politicians and expensive suits 
I know where I belong 
I belong with someone 
Who is a bit more like me 
But I can’t help who I love
It happens automatically  
Not that you love me anyway 
It was just a thought 
That money doesn’t matter 
But my love is not to be bought.
