Time And Tango

Copyright 1989 Daniel E. Biemer

What the world needs now is a different angle
Need a little more time and a little less tango
Everybody's talking 'bout the passion
And it seems to me that love is out of fashion
 
I walk along the streets at night, thinking about your name
Trying to clear my head out after seeing you today
I swore long ago, I'd never feel this way again
It's much too easy
 
'Cause I don't trust the passion, shun first impressions,
You're not the only one
And too many time's I woke up in the morning
Found that the feeling's gone
 
What the world needs now is a different angle
Need a little more time and a little less tango
Shouldn't let our bodies do the speaking
And I try to be strong but times I find I'm weakening
 
I wonder if you love me when you're asking me to stay
I wonder if I love you
I wonder if I've got the strength to simply walk away
And find the honest answer
 
Because I'm just a poor man, not very bright
No background or family
And I don't understand what a woman like you
Could want with a guy like me
 
What the world needs now is a different angle
Need a little more time and a little less tango
Oh, we always talk about the weather
Take a little more time and I might like you better
