21 Things I Want in a Lover

from Under Rug Swept released in 2002 track #1
duration 03:28
Do you derive joy when someone else succeeds?
Do you not play dirty when engaged in competition?
Do you have a big intellectual capacity?
But know that it alone does not equate wisdom

Do you see everything as an illusion?
But enjoy it even though you are not of it?
Are you both masculine and feminine
Politically aware and don't believe in capital punishment?

These are twenty-one things
That I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs
But qualities that I prefer

Do you derive joy from diving in and seeing that loving
Someone can actually feel like freedom?
Are you funny? A la self-deprecating
Like adventure and have many formed opinions

These are twenty-one things
That I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs
But qualities that I prefer
I figure I can describe
It since I have a choice in the matter
These are twenty-one things
U choose to choose in a lover

I'm in no hurry, I could wait forever
I'm in no rush 'cause I like being solo
No worries and certainly no pressure
In the meantime I'll live like there's no tomorrow

Are you uninhibited in bed
More than three times a week
Up for being experimental?
Are you athletic? Are you thriving
In a job that helps your brother?
Are you not addicted?

These are twenty-one things
That I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs
But qualities that I prefer
I figure I can describe
It since I have a choice of the matter
These are twenty-one things
I choose to choose in a lover

I think you're curious and communicative
