Unrequited love is an inspiration

Yeah, I know it’s an old tale

But old tales never fail


Some still look for Cinderella’s glass slipper

Some hope they’ll hide or be hipper


Some still dream of Arthur’s round table

Some are apt to be stable, others able


Today’s desperation

Tomorrow’s inspiration


I look for you in the elements

And I seek from you clemency


I am but human hunting fairy tales

I thought of you one day a grand scale


I won’t apologize because I loved

To love is human; it’s inhuman to be unloved


Yes, protect the sanity walls you have

You don’t deserve a crazy who thinks he has Moses’ staff


You help write the words, it’s you I immortalize

When they think of you, you were my sweet surprise


I don’t chase you; I project you out of my mind

Maybe someone can say the words I couldn’t find


There’s no way I’ll hurt you; love isn’t that

Love is good for two; for one it isn’t that bad


At least it’s in me and hasn’t changed yet

You take a chance on me and I’m your winning bet


But if not, you live in my words, an ideal

‘cause I don’t care what people think about what I feel


To me you’re real. As real as my heart chooses

And love you I will no matter what anyone supposes


I can’t live with you but I can’t live without you

There’s a choice only for me here and I choose “I do”
