Who in the hell wouldn’t love you?
Wouldn’t give himself to you
Who wouldn’t love you at first sight?
Wouldn’t give you his days and his nights?
Only a mad bastard would refuse your hand
Only a masochist would look right past
you woman
You fell in unrequited love?
I seriously doubt it
who was he?
I can’t bear to think about it
That such an idiot could be among us now
on our streets driving a car
Would he even know how?
Open the door first
Then turn the key
He’s a moron
He’ failed miserably
When such a rare and beautiful thing
came blowing his way
‘I don’t think so’
Is that all that he could say?
Who wouldn’t see you and want to weep
because they’ve seen themselves
and the emptiness they keep
Who wouldn’t want to give you
anything at all?
Anything you ask
Any name you care to call
No one
He’s no one.
