Why Can’t I Write a Love Song?

Why can’t I write a love song?

Inspiration comes when my world’s crashing down

Though I try to live in the moment

When I’m happy, I never write it all down

When I see you again

Maybe this time I’ll say hello

Maybe we two will know what to do

But I don’t know

 

Only when there’s sorrow

Do I find the right words to say

Exactly what I’m feeling

If only a little late

 

Will I still pretend

You’re still my friend — I don’t think so

Maybe we two will know what to do

But I don’t know

 

I don’t know     I don’t know

Maybe I’ll take time to make time on my own

On my own

 

 

Only  when I fall apart

Do I see life with such clarity

I know just what I’m feeling

When I’m alone, words come with ease

 

When I see you again

Maybe this time I’ll say hello

Maybe we two will know what to do

But I don’t know    I don’t know
