In response

It doesnt interest me what you do for a living
Or what you take home
I want to know if you can dream
And not be afraid of waking up.

It doesnt interest me who you knew
Where you went, and if you are cool
I want to know who you are
When you are lonely

It doesnt interest me
If you had a failed affair
My concern is
Did you try?

It doesnt matter if you are shy or overt,
But can you open up when things need to be said?
Would you talk to me of your failures without reserve
And listen without censure when I tell you of mine?

It is nice indeed that you are
Mature, confident and practical
I want to know if you would
Risk looking a fool for love?
