Try again

June 30, 2010

Remember Aaliyah?

“If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again”

Rare honest advice from a hot young woman who realizes that her reflexive rejections may be weeding out good men. There’s the female arrogance of constantly rejecting males while expecting continued approaches – a biological inevitability. And then there’s the honest attempt to explain her motivation and give advice to guys on how to handle this. Delicious.

Aaliyah describes in detail how her initial rejection serves to test his mettle. She offers a psychologically accurate account of the familiar shittest of rejection.

Too late for these great guys to ever get it…

Try again

What would you do to get to me
What would you say to have your way
Would you give up or try again
If I hesitate to let you in

Now would you be yourself or play a role
Tell all the boys or keep it low
If I say no would you turn away
Or play me off or would you stay, ohh, oh

And if at first you don’t succeed,
Dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cos if at first you don’t succeed, first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again

I’m into you, you’re into me
But I can’t let it go so easily

Not till I see what this could be
Could be eternity or just a week, oh
Ay, yo our chemistry is off the chain
It’s perfect now but will it change
This ain’t a yes, this ain’t a no
Just do your thing, we’ll see how it go, ohh, oh

And if at first you don’t succeed (yeah)
Dust yourself off and try again (again)
You can dust it off and try again, try again (yeah)
Cos if at first you don’t succeed (ooh)
You can dust it off and try again (try again)
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (yeah)

Said you don’t wanna throw it all away
I might be shy on the first date
What about the next date
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh
Said you don’t wanna throw it all away
I might be buggin on the first date
What about the next date
Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohh

And if at first you don’t succeed
Dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cos if at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed)
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again, try again (again, again)

Lipstick

June 21, 2010

I’m lying on the couch.
She puts her lipstick on.

She jumps on top of me,
presses her lips to the side of my neck.

Then she leans back to look at the print.

“Hot,” she blushes at the sight of the mark
her own lips left on me.
