(Don Breithaupt)

You may make the gestures
She suggests to you
That you should try to make
You may look like Brando
As you method act
Your hand around her waist

But if you’re not waking up
Shaking like a leaf
Staring up at the stars above
You’re not in love

You may play the mind games
She reminds you
You should always try to play
You may sound like Bogart
As you smooth talk
All her outer layers away

You say it feels like the real thing
You say you’re walking like a man
But let me know how you’re feeling
When the real thing hits the fan

You may say the sweet things
She so sweetly says
That you should try to say
You may feel like Gable
As you leave her
In the doorway every day
