“You vs. Me”
completed on 9.18.12

you say that you’re a hopeless romantic
that you and i are one in the same
but you don’t see love the way i see it
’cause you refuse to acknowledge the fallout

love is not for sport
love is not a game
pain is not something easily washed away
where a heart can forever fade away

there are a million stars at night
just like the odds of finding
the perfect person for your life
but you don’t care about searching for a wife

i used to be just like you
until i realized she’s the one who got away
now i spend every day hoping
love will come back my way

if i have learned anything from you
it’s that life doesn’t give you anything
you pray and then have to go get it
hoping you find a love that’s true

if i could go back
though you can never go back
you have to live with missed chances
and fight to find future romances

you don’t see the bigger picture
realize how empty life is without love
if there is one thing you can learn from me
it’s that love is this life’s master key
