09. Jezebel

Are We There Yet?
by John Reuben


First glimpse, instant attraction
She acted as if my interest was a common reaction
Took satisfaction in knowin she was beautiful
She twisted up the blessing and she used it as a tool
Of manipulation, yet I was blinder at aim
She was very athletic, but yet excelled at the mind game
Lame excuse, but itís the truth, come on, I mean
I was young and naive and wouldíve believed anything
When it came to sweetheart, she had me wrapped
Around her little finger and my mind was tapped
But none the less, Iím the fault obviously
I was confused and chose stupidity over patiently waiting
I mean how could I not see that tryin to
fill a God-sized void with her
Would only leave me empty, but I did it
And like a stupid human I fell
By the way, whatís her name
I think they call her Jezebel

Jezebel, who? Jezebel, man, who is she, what is she?
Man, itís hard to tell
Jezebel, who? Jezebel, come on, what is she about?

Second glimpse, still attracted, but Iím not quite sure
Been playin games with Jezebel, but now I question what for
Before, it was a motivation, now, itís not clear
Now Iím askin myself, Reuben, whoís the one at fault here
See, Iím the fool so why do I remain
In a relationship with all to loose, yet nothing to gain
Except headache, heartache, and an occasional where you been
Pssssssst, Jezebel, whereíd you hear that (from a friend)
Frontin Godliness, I say hey miss, youíre posin
You love material things, but youíre favoriteís sheepskin clothin
So then what can I say, her charm fades by the day
And Iím askin the Good Lord, whatever twisted me to stay
Straight for a moment, now itís time to let go
Though my willpowerís weak, man, thereís one thing that I know
That greater is he thatís in me than he whoís in this world
and it wasnít the he in me that hooked it up with this girl

Life must go on, the dawn of a new day was risin
I opened up my eyes and then I started realizin
That my vision was blurred so there will be no third glimpse
After two and a half, I think I came to my sense
So with this, I think itís time that we parted
And dismiss somethin we should never started
So miss, I guess Iíll say farewell
One last time for the books, her name was what?
