Bring Me Down

"Sweet like a kiss sharp like a razor blade/I find you when I'm close to the bottom/You can't appreciate the time it takes/To kick a love I always knew was kind of wrong..." I am attracted to broken men. Men who stay up too late. Drink too much. Smoke, chew or engage in any other legal bad habit. If they have a caffeine dependency - all the better. Aside from instant disqualification (hitting & cheating) if they don't know how to treat a girl - yeah, I go for that too. I'm attracted to men who harbor the idea that somehow they are just level with the ground, boots in the dirt, trying to find a step up or two. And even if they don't - if that's the vibe I get from them, I'll be attracted - I assure you.
"...Baby bring me down/I want to be right where you are/Baby bring me down/You can look me in the eye and break my heart..." I'm attracted to men with genuine arrogance...but once that fine line is crossed and the genuine arrogance turns to all-out arrogance of the narcissistic or egotistical nature...well, I may be annoyed, but most likely it'll be hard for me to stop being attracted. I'm attracted to men who bring me down. Down from whatever level I am on in life. I'm attracted to those who bring me a little closer to earth - whether or not that's good or bad.
There are men whose minds wander almost as much as mine. But it's when I can look into the eyes of a man and see nothing but the eyes that I become unbelievably attracted. I'm attracted to men who are emotionally unavailable. I'm attracted to men who are raw-er than others. No need for pressed shirts. Keep 'em wrinkled and feel uncomfortable in a tie. I'm okay with that. I'm attracted to men who don't always want a girl around. Who like to just wander around. I'm attracted to men who refuse to live up to any kind of standard.
"...Baby bring me down/I want to be right where you are/Baby bring me down/You can look me in the eye and break my heart..."
lyrics from Miranda Lambert's "Bring Me Down" off her album, 'Kerosene'...
