(what) I want

if I walk in front of you, what would you say?
drifter look, glasses and trekking shoes
a little smartass and know-it-all
could I be friendly, why should one bother?

I am a Muslim, sorry
you are Christian, Jew, I don’t care
you are in Europe, Africa, I don’t mind
I want to be true to myself

I don’t know much about you
but hey, maybe we can talk
Earl Grey, Chamomile, or some cheap teabags
maybe minutes of honest, few good times

I am an Asian, sorry
you live in UK, US I don’t care
you went to London, New York I don’t mind
I want to be true wherever I’d be

you don’t know much about me
but hey, maybe we can talk
muffins, croissants, or cheap apple pies
maybe few hours of good, little walk in autumn

look at me, I don’t even hate you
I am just the way I am
I want to live with someone’s hand in mine,
someone’s heart close to mine

I live for myself, I want to be true to myself
do we really know each other, well I wonder

but hey, maybe we can talk.
