That’s Why

Day by day

Night by night

I live my life

Out of mind, out of sight

But when I pay attention

To the things people say

I notice a pattern

Here’s what my bro said today

“That’s why you single”

Man that shit stung

To hear it that bluntly

Without laughter or a pun

Cause he wasn’t joking

He wasn’t lying

I mean I’m trying

To get that one I can’t find

I can’t possibly settle

It’s really just not in me

That’s signing a deal with the Devil

And becoming something I’ll never be

Last time I did ended badly

It isn’t love without tragedy

Until then I’ll just sigh

And keep hearing ‘that’s why’
