That's Not Happening Now

It doesn't take a drink to get me talkin’
I already was when I walked in the door
I have no tales from the dark side of town
It all happened in daylight, I’m not poor

I’m not the type who’s late for supper
Especially if you’re making it for me
If you’re wondering what I’m thinking
Just ask, it's not gonna' be a mystery

I know I'm only human
I don't have to confess
I've made many mistakes
Thought the wrong things
But that's not happening now

All my roots are growing above ground
I don’t have secrets, they’re walking around
I hope you can live with the things I’ve done
It’s not so hard, forgiveness is a setting sun

I know I'm only human
I don't have to confess
I've made many mistakes
Thought the wrong things
I’m thinking of you right now

Give me a chance, I’m ready for you
The hurt and pain, I’ve left all that behind
You can be the one to get the best of me
What would they tell you, was I ever kind?

I know I'm only human
I don't have to confess
I've made many mistakes
Thought the wrong things
But that's not happening now

That’s not what’s happening now
That's not what's happening now
That's not what's happening now

Elijah... my man... I think I was trying to use right and wrong in the sense of my own selfish and how I was trying to become more outwardly focused to this mythical lover who came along at the right time albeit late in life. I appreciate your praise and your honest critical assessment.

I really enjoyed that, Mark. However, using the judgmental adjectives "right and wrong", to me, took away from it's perfection. Since you said "I don't have any secrets" it suggests yo are going to live an open life because, supposedly, you he learned the purpose or is seeking the cause behind it and is willing to make whatever amends necessary.

Thanks for sharing it.
