  1. Danger

From the recording Losing Her By Fractions

Lyrics

VERSE
When the danger is drivin’ too fast, you can always slow down
And when you might get hit from behind, you can always speed up
Don’t swim alone in deep waters because you just might drown
But all bets are off when the subject is love

CHORUS
(’Cause) (That) It’s hard to skirt the danger when the danger is the skirt
There aren’t many men alive who think it hurts to flirt
Even when you end up face-first in the dirt
It’s hard to skirt the danger when the danger is the skirt

VERSE
I didn’t know it then, but her girlfriends called her “legs”
All I knew was her mid-thigh skirt had left me mesmerized
She was turnin’ ’em down, left and right, and I’m not the type to beg
But I threw caution to the wind ’cause I’ve always realized

Repeat CHORUS

VERSE
So I summoned all my courage and put my right foot first
I gave it everything I had; she would know I’d done my best
Whatever I said and did, in love she became immersed
You can’t get where you want to go, sometimes, without a little stress

Repeat CHORUS (2x)

TAG
Yes, it’s hard to skirt the danger when the danger is the skirt
