my lyricsbox
Don't chose me because I am faithful
Don't choose me because I am kind
If your heart settles on me
I'm for the taking
Take me for longing or leave me behind.

I would be, for you, a fire in a rainbow
I would be, for you, an opening door
Time and hard lessons are one kind of wisdom
Try to forget them or love me no more.

--- Instrumental ---

I'm not asking your heart to believe me
I'm not asking for promise or pledge
Whatever the answer, it's yes that's the question
I am the fool dancin' over the edge.

--- Instrumental ---

Don't choose me because I am faithful
Don't choose me because I am kind
If your heart settles on me, I'm for the taking
Take me for longing or leave me behind...
This song is from the album "Live [Rounder]" and "New Favorites [Rounder]".
