Hopeless Romance

This is about someone who wants to fall in love, but keeps getting turned down. The person wants to have a romantic relationship with someone like in the movies, but finds it hard to distinguish fact from fiction

She's pretty, but she's a better one

But this girl wishes to come home

Indifferent to all, and loathing to many

Because they all see the same thing

And know my soul is empty

 

She's in love with an idea

But this girl's in love with an enemy

Here I go again, sacrifice my vision for lust

Why don't they ever fall in love with me?

 

I'm cursing myself again

My friends stand unwilling or unable

They've sorted themselves a life

Succeeding where I have always failed 

 

Should I care at all

Should I really fall in love so soon

Because my words have the power to change her

Should I be a better man and leave her to decide

Or do I live in darkness and task my soul to hide

 

She's in love with an idea

But this girl's in love with an enemy

Here I go again, sacrificing my vision for lust

Why don't they ever fall in love with me?

 

I'm running, I'm drinking

I've quit smoking and given up thinking

But nothing makes a difference

As my friends look for another excuse

But I know the truth, I'm wide awake

I might as well cut myself loose 

 

She's in love with an idea

But this girl's in love with an enemy

Here I go again, sacrificing my vision for lust

Why don't they ever fall in love with me?

 

The End
