Things are much better now Then back in days gone by When I was always lonely And love songs made me cry. I no longer get depressed When couples pass me by Seeing two people happy Made me wonder why.
Was I some kind of loser Or someone undeserving? Love just kept avoiding me I found it most unnerving. I questioned everything about me Was I really so unloveable? I could find no answers then. I only knew I was miserable.
Friends tried hard to fix me up But nothing seemed to work. It was like I was a circus clown Or some kind of social ****. I smiled and laughed and I Was oh so very polite But somehow everything I tried Did not seem to work out right.
So after such a long time I decided to give up trying. If I said I wasn’t nervous then I would totally be lying. Once I gave up self-pitying I began to enjoy every day. I guess I looked a bit better; Things began to go my way.
One day a conversation Turned into a relationship And all those safeguards And fears began to slip. They dropped off and suddenly I found it easy to feel love. This was the kind of feeling I was hearing so much of.
So, the sad times were gone They had slipped into the past And out of the blue, unprepared I have something that lasts. I am smart enough to know I should not ask myself why. I am just delighted that today Love songs don’t make me cry.
