Of Course... (my LGBT relationship)by Red
Of course, when we first met…I thought you weren't right for me You acted like you weren't interestedWe struggled with the fact that we seemed very differentOf course, for a while…I felt interested in a friendshipYou seemed arrogant and put offTogether we were pretty cute!Of course…I couldn’t figure out what you wantedYou couldn’t figure out your feelingsTogether we couldn’t face not being togetherOf course…For me, the best part of our relationship is that 22 years later we are still in loveFor you, the best part of our relationship is that 22 years later we are in still loveTogether we can always find laughter!Of course…Together, we are destined to beOf course…Our relationship is incredible!
