A/N: The idea for this one came to me at about 12:30 this morning when I was reading EverTheDreamer's fic 'Comfort.' I was reading it and I suddenly thought of this song and that it's make a good Rose/Herbie songfic. Prior to today, I hadn't heard this song in over a year or two (which, knowing me, is scary). Anyways, I would ramble all day if you'd let me. On with the fic!

This lovely lonely man
I've only known a day
I look at him, and cannot look away
Oh what a love
Oh what a lovely lonely man

I find now that, even though we've only known each other not much more than a day or two, I can't look away from him because I think he'll disappear, think he's an illusion, a hallucination.

I've met so many men
So easy to forget
I thought I'd grown immune to them
And yet
He's such a love
He's such a lovely lonely man

I've met other men that I've forgotten about within a week of meeting them. I thought I'd grown immune to men after my third husband, immune to loving one, immune to thinking of one so constantly. But all of that changed the moment I set eyes on Herbie. All of that changed the moment he walked into my life.

How did he touch my heart
How did this feeling start
This glow that feels so warm inside
This sudden summer storm inside

How did he break through my immunity into my heart to lodge himself there? How did this feeling start, this warm, glowing summer storm?

My life now has a plan
To someday make him see
That I need him as much as he needs me
Oh what a love
Oh what a lovely lonely man

Now, I have a mission in life to make him see somehow that I need him as so much more than an agent for the girls, that I need him as much as I've realized he needs me now, that we're perfect for each other.

My life now has a plan
To someday make him see
That I need him as much as he needs me
Oh what a love
Oh what a lovely lonely man
Oh how I love this one and only man
