Love Song

She wrote him a song, but it never got finished
They both fell in love, but it was soon diminished
She sits on his bed and cries in his lap
He cries back at her, knowing they can’t go back.

Hours go by and neither one can accept
That by letting go they are doing what’s best
At the end of the day, comes the part which she fears
To let him go without shedding a tear

Never again will she kiss him goodbye
And just that thought makes her start to cry
Now she’ll finish that song, and she’ll write it today
This is the start and here’s what it says

“You are my siren, you drew me in
With a voice like an angel and the softest skin
Your eyes shine like diamonds and your smile melts my heart
I know that nothing could tear us apart”

That’s what she wrote and let me just say
That she’d never do anything to throw that away
But that’s not how it works; this world’s bitter and harsh
And then something happened, which drew them apart

An old girlfriend showed up and that’s when she knew
That his feelings for her were not shiny and new
This person left him and crushed his heart
But he had loved her since the very start.

When our girl came along he saw a way
To end his pain and make it all go away
But by loving this person through thick and thin spur
He looked at our girl and wished it was her

Now this is where the second verse starts
It’s about how he seemed to break her heart
She found out his feelings, it went straight to her head
So she carried on writing and here’s what she said

“You make me smile when no one else can twirl
It just makes me happy to be your girl
But it hurts me deeply that you long for her heart
I thought we would last, but this breaks us apart”

She sat in her room and just wished she 
Could be just like his ex so that they could be
But as long as she was there they could never be true
So she’d sit in her room feeling sad and blue

Now comes the part where he’s crying in her lap
They both just decided to never go back
The pain is immense but it’s saving her heart
Because staying with him would rip her apart

Here’s where she decides to finish the song
The story of how it all went wrong
She starts the last verse with tears dripping off her nose
The papers all wet but here’s how it goes.

“You were my siren, you drew me in
You taught me to love and you taught me to sin
I never thought you could break my heart
But I guess we were wrong right from the start”

“You were my siren, now I’m dead at sea
You drew me in, but you didn’t want me
I just wish I knew where it all went wrong
But now another lost lover can hear your song”
