Quite Like You

October 23, 2020

I remember the one with the cool black car,

I remember the one who took me too far,

I remember the one who fixed my swing,

and of course the one who laughed when I’d sing.

 

But no one, no one was quite like you.

 

I remember the one who could not be swayed,

And I remember the one who couldn't be saved.

I remember the one who always said no,

and of course the one who said he’d never go.

 

But no one, no one was quite like you.

 

I remember the one who broke my heart,

he was the artist who bought me fine art,

I remember my first and I rejected the last.

 

But no one was quite like you.

 

I remember the one who flew me to Rome,

he was the one who left me alone.

I remember the one who loved me the most,

I miss the way he was such a great host.

I remember the ones who pulled my hair,

& I remember the ones who truly cared.

 

But no one, not one, was quite like you.

 

I remember the one who teased all the time,

I remember the one who believed I could shine.

I remember the one who crushed my dreams,

he was the one who made me scream.

 

I remember the one who taught me to cope,

I remember the one who tried giving me dope,

I loved the one who bought me wine, he & I had not enough time.

 

I remember the one who sailed me away, God, he was the one I let get away.

I remember the one who was cold as ice, and the one who was just a little too nice.

 

But no one, no one was quite like you.

 

I miss the one who gave me life, but he sure did cause me years of strife.

I remember the one who couldn’t wait,

And the one who was always, always late.

I remember the ones who made me laugh, brothers are a young girl's better half.

 

I remember the one who talked about God,

I think he found me just a bit odd.

And I still want the one who plays in a band, I think about how we made love on the sand.

 

But no one, not one, was quite like you.
