Liner Notes: 

Kind of a cheat here - wrote this YEARS ago. One of my first (2016ish) before I joined this outstanding community. I did some editing on it today and wanted to post it because I think it has some potential. It's official and legal copyright is early 2017.

What We Are

100 texts daily
Can’t forget to delete
No GPS usage
For the places we meet

No one can see us
No one can know
Be sure to go home, babe
And put on a good show

You don’t have to remind me
Every time that we meet
To watch out for my make up
And my perfume's too sweet
Take off my lipstick and
Don’t park next to your car
There’s no need to remind me
Because I know what we are

Let’s meet at the hotel
The one that’s real old
Lunch at the cafe
A couple miles down the road

No credit card usage
Stick with just cash
Be sure the receipts
Don’t end up in your trash

You don’t have to remind me
Every time that we meet
To watch out for my make up
And my perfume's too sweet
Take off my lipstick and
Don’t park next to your car
There’s no need to remind me
Because I know what we are

Can’t stay the night dear
Can’t take a whole day
Can’t raise the suspicion
This is our only way

You don’t have to remind me
Every time that we meet
To watch out for my make up
And my perfume's too sweet
Take off my lipstick and
Don’t park next to your car
There’s no need to remind me
Because I know what we are

No need to remind me
Because I know what we are

No need to remind me
Because I know what we are

No need to remind me
Because I know what we are

No need to remind me
Because I know what we are

No need to remind me
I can’t forget what we are

Ye I concur with cindyrella. Really fun!

Maybe it's not meant as fun? I read it as neurotic list of things you gotta keep in check... like pilots do Biggrin (like I do)

Super well written!

Very cool. It's like there is a check list before and after meeting for that illicit affair... I really like the hook of "No need to remind me
Because I know what we are". It's like the person is admitting they know it's not right and don't want to be reminded of the ill deeds... a good write
