I'll Never Write The Perfect Love Song

E-mail Print PDF

 

I'm starting to accept

I will never write the perfect love song

love is just a mess

and it's much too hard to hum along

 

I've nothing left to say

not one more trite sentiment

no insight, just regret

and one more sad cliche

 

I'm starting to accept

I'll never write the perfect love song

there's been too many attempts

and it's been far too long

 

I fear our love is dead

as we lie together deathly still

humming sad songs and feeling ill

on our segregated bed

 

Now I'm straining hard to see

anything left for me and you

no more catchy tunes

And bitterness that's given way to apathy

 

 

 

Praxis

...united front politics without a vanguard party.
