Before I Met Her Girls

Before I met her girls
I was unaware of obvious things;
that some people are only pretty with make up on
and that everyone has his or her own mirror face.

Before I met her girls
I thought I'd never need to win another heart again.
But now I am the other man
I have to try to win theirs.

Before I met her girls
I'd never think my own heart
could actually drop to the pit of my stomach
each time they walked out the door.

Before I met her girls,
I was unaware of obvious things;
like how much damage I caused when I was young,
kissing girls on the foreheads and promising to call tomorrow.
