Playing Possum (Give Me Reason)

Do you gossip.
Playing possum all day long.

Ready to dump that junk.
I'm so ready,
For you...
To dump that junk.

Give me reason,
To keep my love maintained to sustain.
And give me time,
To understand...
What is it you gain.
Give me more touches,
Your kisses and hugs.
And I'll to you give...
My everything.

'Really? '

Do you gossip.
Playing possum all day long.

You are...
There to stay,
On my mind.
Yes you are...
Time to give to you I find.
You are...
A blessing I've been glad to get.
But your love for gossip,
I can't deal with.

Do you gossip.
Playing possum all day long.

'I don't gossip when you're here with me.
And it's not gossip...
When it's done with dignity.'

I see.
But do you gossip,
With others when I try to sleep?

'Only if it's a necessity.'

Give me reason...
Why you can't dump that junk.
I'm so ready,
For you...
To dump that junk.

'It seems you play possum more than me.
Your nosiness keeps you from getting sleep.
Even possums playing dead don't 'try' to peek.
Or sneak.'

Uh...

'Give me reason...
Why you can't dump that junk.
I'm so ready,
For you...
To dump that junk.
Especially when the floor begins to creak.'
