The things I wish I had the courage to say (November Writing Challenge, Day 5)

If you need me to be sweet
I can give you what you need

I got ladyfingers baby
I got kid gloves
baby I got heart

I bet you didn't know that I could treat you right
that underneath the armor
there's another girl
she's standing with a suitcase
ready to run
in case you're wondering
why she's so quick to come and go

she might be new
she might be old
she might be scared as hell
she might not be so bold
she might not be so bold

* With thanks to Luscious Jackson and their lyrics for "Ladyfingers"
