Many Faces

Many Faces

"What do women want?"--Freud

What keeps you running
From one to another?
Do you feel you are going to die?
Did someone use you,
Abuse you and smother
Your trust; and you never knew why?

You're somebody different
In all of the places
You're driven to find someone new.
You're one of those women
Who wear many faces;
And I wish I had known less than two.

What makes you wonder
Just what you've been missing?
Does it hurt less when you're on the run?
How can you make love
So real when you're kissing
Mean nothing to you when you're done?

Whatever moves you
To look in new places
Is never the last love you knew.
You're one of those women
Who wear many faces;
And I wish I had known less than two.
"We must love one another or die." W.H.Auden
I admit I'm an asshole. Now, can we get back to the conversation?

Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Puts me low and puts me high.
Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Gets me low and gets me high.
By the time she's a-comin'
She's already said goodbye.

Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Puts me up and puts me down.
Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Gets me up and gets me down.
By the time she's a-comin"
She's already not around.

Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Puts me off and puts me on.
Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Gets me off and gets me on.
By the time she's a-comin'
She's already up 'n gone.

Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Puts me out and puts me in.
Hot 'n cold runnin' woman
Gets me out 'n gets me in.
By the time she's a-comin'
She's already gone again.

Blues.

What does the post-modern woman want from a man?

As boring as it sounds.. I just want a nice man. Of course there has to be an attraction there, before even considering what maketh the man.

Thanks for responding. My two songs above reflect experience with women who were with me but always longed to be with someone else. I'm sure there are other women out there who could be satisfied.
Other than sexual attraction what is it about a man that attracts you to him?

A certain amount of intelligence, and height.. then everything else should fall into place. At my age I know what I want and don't want (I didn't when I was younger, which is why I preferred to remain single).
