What Is This?


This will be the 95th. time

That I lose my heart

__and then lose my mind

I know I can't make you mine

There's no question about that

At least there'll be only 5 more to go

Before I finally get loved back

If that equation is actually right

Who knows?

Maybe I won't need 5 more

Maybe you'll want me

But that "maybe"

__could be me just being "cocky"

I don't know how to make you mine

I only know how to make me yours

Which is not enough for true love

So I guess I'm fucked

My world couldn't get anymore darker

I just can't see you being with me

I don't have the time to wait

__for "the one"

Evn if she's you

So maybe I'm just gonna suffer

Being in love with you

With me being a no-one

And you being all I want

I won't have a problem letting you go

When you refuse me

__or give me a sign

____that you don't want me

______if I find some one else to love me

But if I don't

How will I let you go?

How will I recover from you hurting me?

My heart is not bullet proof

I don't wanna lose you

But how can I have you?

How can I ever

__have you?

I'll know by what you wear next week

If what I told you meant anything
