Hey there lovlely ukulele peepo!

I'm currently working on a little tune for a very special lady. I've got almost everything figured out, but there is one line where I'm stumped. I hope that maybe one of you could give me a nudge in the right direction.

I'll just paste the whole thing, so you can get a feel for what I'm going for. The line in question will be marked [!] and should rhyme with the one after. Oh yeah, I thought of the obvious "something something desire", but I don't think it fits with the rest of the song.

I would be really grateful for any hint.

Much Luv!
Dirka.

Edit: of course, any kind of feedback is eagerly solicited.



Intro:
F Bb C x2

verse 1:
F Dm
I used to be intelligent, my argument so elegant,
Bb C
my style of speech sophisticated, but lately it's been complicated.
F Dm
'Cause when we're in a conversation my mind likes to go on vacation
Bb C
The words don't leave my mouth at all, and if they do they're terrible.
F Dm
I fret, I squirm and it's so weird, my confidence just dissappears,
Bb C7
And when I am in this confusion I can see only one solution:

Chorus:
F C Dm
Can you please be less awesome?
Bb F c
Just a little less grand?
F C
No quite as cute, less brilliant,
Dm Bb
a bit boring, if you can.
F C7 F Bb C
I'd really like to use my mind again.


Verse 2:
F Dm
The world knows me as logical, so keen and philosophical,
Bb C
always right and smug about it, I am a smartass and I'm proud.
F Dm
But when I'm in your company, my reason packs and starts to leave.
Bb C
My thoughts go round and round in circles, I must say it's quite disconcerting.
F Dm
I am a mess, I can't think clear, out of control when you are near,
Bb C7
I'm lost without a single clue, so can I please ask this of you:

Chorus:
F C Dm
Would you mind being less lovely?
Bb F C
Maybe not all that great?
F C
Less charming and less positive,
Dm Bb
a tiny bit irate?
F C7 F Bb C
So I can go back to thinking straight.


Bridge:
This can't go on this can continue,

I'm getting dumber by the minute.

[!]

And soon I'll set my pants on fire.
