At First Sight

It's about the Hollywood-perpetrated idea that there is one perfect person in the world for us. It's all about realising you've gotta make compromises and not fall in love so completely with someone when you first meet them

Another year flies by and I'm single again

I'm lonely, desperate and seemingly at the end

Why do I continually look to fall in love

Why is a smile or a kiss never enough

 

If I look for love I'm gonna fall

Because I know love at first sight

Doesn't even exist at all 

If I look for devotion I've already lost

I'm driving her away now

I'm looking too hard, at too high at cost

 

Another party night and I feel outcast 

Another whiskey weekend and I'm burning fast

I'm stuck for words because I'm pondering fate

But I know now to keep my cool, but too late

 

If I look for love I'm gonna fall

Because I know love at first sight

Doesn't even exist at all

If I look for devotion I've already lost

I'm driving her away now

I'm looking too hard, at too high a cost

 

Sweet glory, downstairs and the music's booming

My t-shirt's stained but I don't care

She may be the one, but what if

Our souls were never split

True love will never exist?

She may be perfect, but what if

She's not looking for marriage

But he so heavily insists? 

 

 

 

The End
