Posts Tagged ‘Plan B’

This is an unusual post for me (Bryan), and I hope you’ll find it offensive. I heard it in my head as a rap song, so that’s how I tried to write it. There is some explanation at the end.

“Be My ‘B’ (A Player’s Anthem)

*

I’m sittin’ by myself
Again my plans fell through
Got nothing goin’ on
So I’m reachin’ out to you

*

Certainly not my first choice
But for now you’ll have to do
Ur grateful for my attention
Not thinkin’ bout what’s true

*

Quick to give a shout back
I can always count on you
You got nothin’ goin’ on
And I’m tired of feelin’ blue

*

Don’t like to be alone
All them voices in my head
We could cuddle on the couch
Maybe make it to the bed

*

(chorus)
Come on little baby
And be my Plan “B“
Not sayin’ that it’s cheap
Fact is that it’s free
Ain’t talkin’ bout love
Cause it’s all about me
Come on little baby
And be my Plan “B”
(background singers echo – Be my, Be my “B”)

*

Again I’m feeling lonely
My plans ain’t workin’ out
Feelin’ sorry for myself
So I’m giving you a shout

*

We could chill at your place
Or ride around the town
But ya need to take the backseat
Case I want you to duck down

*

See I’m lookin’ for a starter
But I guess I’ll have to wait
So we can do some time
Til I find a ”real” date

*

You keep me on a pedestal
I’ll keep you on a shelf
Keep dreamin’ all about me
I’ll keep thinkin’ of myself

*

(Repeat chorus)
Come on little baby
And be my Plan “B“
Not sayin’ that it’s cheap
Fact is that it’s free
Ain’t talkin’ bout love
Cause it’s all about me
Come on little baby
And be my Plan “B”
(background singers echo – Be my, Be my “B”)

*

Need to pick up when I’m callin’
Ya know I’m keepin’ score
Keep you hangin’ by a thread
Keeps me comin’ back for more

*

We could do some dancin’
And let our bodies sway
When someone comes along
Need to get you out the way

*

Act like we got somethin’
Like you’ll win me in the end
The lie you tell is to yourself
You’re choosing to pretend

*

Don’t show me that sad face
Never promised what we’d be
Don’t be hatin’ on my stuff
Cuz, I’m just doing me

*

(Repeat chorus)
Come on little baby
And be my Plan “B“
Not sayin’ that it’s cheap
Fact is that it’s free
Ain’t talkin’ bout love
Cause it’s all about me
Come on little baby
And be my Plan “B”
(fade out with background singers repeating – Be my, Be my “B”)

I don’t know which is harder to understand, how someone can treat a person this way, or why someone would allow themselves to be a “Plan B”. Everyone deserves to be loved and cherished; everyone deserves to be someone’s “Plan A”. Don’t ever settle for being a backup plan. Wait for the one who’ll love you for who you are; who will care about making your dreams come true.
