about

Recently, I figured out how my wife keeps me so interested in her. It's something that she does instinctively. She doesn't even try to do it, but it drives me to keep seeking to win her.

For most men, the fun is in the chase. They feel inspired and energized by the potential of winning the heart of a special young lady friend. When that beautiful vision of a woman plays a little "hard-to-get," she becomes even more desirable. Well, what happens when the "prize" is won? What happens after you and your bride exchange the rings, say the vows and return from the honeymoon? Unfortunately, there are a lot of guys out there who don't mature enough to see that there is life beyond the chase. There is a whole new adventure on the other side of the alter.

My wife keeps me chasing. It is hard for me to explain how she does it. She still plays hard-to-get. She's slightly aloof with me, but in a totally attractive way. It keeps me captivated by her. I'm constantly dreaming up new ways to win her affection. She provides just enough affection and encouragement to keep me secure in her love for me, and yet maintains this air of mystery and intrigue that forever keeps me in this state of desire. I want to please her. It makes me want to go to extremes to show her my deep love and passion for her. I don't know how she does it, but I love it. I'm still chasing her. I'm still trying to win her.I wrote this song in an attempt to explain how this dynamic works between us.

lyrics

what must i do to really have her
cause i want her
when she plays so hard to get
let me count the ways i love her
yeah i'll love her
for all the years ahead

she waits for me, waits for me
with her feet here on the ground
until i get my head out of the clouds
she wakes me, i break free
she shows me who i am
and when i think i have her figured out
i'm back where i began

i can see how much she needs me
like i need her
as she slowly lets me in
when i put my arms around her
there's comfort
like a price for me to win

she waits for me, waits for me
with her feet here on the ground
until i get my head out of the clouds
she wakes me, i break free
she shows me who i am
and when i think i have her figured out
i'm back where i began

she still captivates me
like a puppet on a string
she keeps me interested
she's got everything
and i'll wrap around her finger
just to reach her

she waits for me, waits for me
with her feet here on the ground
until i get my head out of the clouds
she wakes me, i break free
she shows me who i am
and when i think i have her figured out
i'm back where i began
