Your Unreachable Heart

-

How can I love you, when you can't be loved?

How in the Hell are you ever gonna be the one?

I fear finding out

That whatever I do about us matters

And that it's my fault

__that we cannot be anything

But "fear" is a "feeling"

And "feelings" can't be avoided

So I will go thru losing you

Like it ain't no thang

It's part of growing up

To lose the one you love

But I don't wanna grow up

I want you forever

Can't stop loving you, ever

But that's your complaint

You never wanted my sorry ass to love you

Not even want you

And the truth hits me, like a ton of bricks

I have got to get over it

Moving on gets harder and harder

My out-of-control heart just can't stop

I can't control what I feel

I can't make my dreams real

As you eventually break free from me

I'll be out of touch with the matter at hand

Not being able to be your man

__is smashing th thoughts of you

____out of my brain

I'm torn aport from letting you go

But my heart must be free

I cannot be under your spell

When you clearly have no need for me

There's no use in loving you

When you'll never love me

I don't want to be forever waiting

For your heart to turn around

If I can't have you now

I am clearing the space I held

__in my heart for you

To leave room for somebody new
