Oh oh, I too have become a cynical lover

Love is not what I believe in 
Not sure if I ever did
There is no such thing as true everlasting love between man and woman
Never seen it, never known it
Thy only love itself unconditional
But that's only cause we're stuck with ourselves
Sad 
If we love another is cause they love us
So we love them for loving us
And they love us for loving them
Not knowing is a vicious cicle
Staying together because of shared experiences and same memories
Making excuses by telling yourself that he or she is the one
Making excuses by telling yourself it is true love cause the love is strong
Making excuses by telling yourself destiny brought you two together
But dear love, not aware this all is not love but rather fear
Fear for ending up alone
Fear for loneliness
Fear for finding out not being good enough
Settling is all we do at the end
No, love is not what I do believe in
Never seen it never known it
Not sure if I ever did
Not sure if I ever will

I'm sorry that your life experiences have brought you to the point where you feel like this... I truly believe that it doesn't have to be that way...
