Instinct


Instinct says 'no, watch out, & beware'
But how she can listen
With a heart so full of care

Instinct says back off
there is no way this can be good
But she is unable to hear
How to behave when she should

Instinct says watch it; you're acting on a whim
there is no room for you
when another belongs to Him

But when she hears his voice
So smooth as the purest butter
It's very easy to pretend
that there is no one other

Yet deep inside she knows
Her instincts are right
Still she rolls the dice
And cries in the night
