Song I dreamed: A Different Kind of No

I’ve been listening to a lot of obscure, 60′s soul music lately because my wife just started a soul band. Perhaps as a result, I dreamed about the song below a couple of nights ago I woke up and wrote down the lyrics. Unlike a lot of things that seem great in a dream but don’t make sense in real life, I think these are pretty good.  Anyone want to put them to music?

A Different Kind of No

Kids are crowding up the floor
I’m only standing by the door
My suit is fine, my shoes are shined
And a sweet girl asks could she be mine

The answer dear
Is fast and clear
And though I wish it wasn’t so
I take her hand and we start to go
See you’re not mine so I can’t say no

Not the no at dawn to start my day
Or the no you whispered when I asked to stay
Not the no I wish to take away
It’s the no I’ll never get to say

My feet are aching from my pacing
The memories surge my heart starts racing
Could I have said the perfect word
So you’d say the words I never heard?

But it’s not real
Cause time’s a wheel
And always rolling straight ahead
If love never lived it can’t be dead
So I just say no inside my head

Not the no at dawn to start my day
Or the no you whispered when I asked to stay
Not the no I wish to take away
It’s the no I’ll never get to say

Are you alone?
Will you take me home?
Can I stay up late to read your poem?
Can I call you up and let you hear my voice?
Why say no to a different choice?

Not the no at dawn to start my day
Or the no you whispered when I asked to stay
But it’s the no I won’t let to go away
Cause at least it keeps you in my way
