That Way

I never asked for affection

Never asked for her touch

I would have asked for something other

But was that asking too much?

I never wanted second glances

Never wanted to stay

 

(chorus)

I never knew what I wanted

till she held me till she kissed me

that way

 

I never asked for devotion

Never asked for tenderness

I never asked for the passion

But was I asking for less?

I never wanted the fire

You know I won’t hesitate

 

(repeat chorus) x 2

 

I wasn’t looking to charm her

I wasn’t aiming to please

I wasn’t looking for that pretty thing

called love

I guess that pretty thing

came looking for me

 

I never asked for affection

Never asked for her touch

I would have asked for something other

But that was asking too much

I never wanted second glances

Never wanted to stay

 

(repeat chorus) x 2
