Sometimes love is doomed
No one understands why
No walks by the sea
A moon that doesn't shine.
Hands that clash but never hold
Heads that bang as you reach for a kiss
Both speaking at the same time
Both in silence when nothing rhymes.
Hurt feelings by accident
Misunderstandings at every turn
Good intentions all gone sour,
Lifeless fade in every flower,
Restaurants that had to close,
Airplanes that were always grounded,
Bitter tears that had to flow,
Suspicions all unfounded.
Sometimes love is like a train
That never really reaches the station,
Stuck inside some fearful tunnel
Never to see the light of day,
With the platform only inches away.
Sometimes love just cannot breathe
In the desert of aching need.
The lovers admit defeat and say it's over,
Even though deep down they knew,
They were perfect for one another.
