Unrequited Love

Well look at what the cat dragged in
He tips his tilted brim
And cracks that crooked grin
He patented back when he always came

He hesitates to greet him
For oh so many reasons
It’s been a set of seasons
Since she has had to hear that boy complain

He used to come to her to ease his pain
She could have loved him once but he was runnin down the drain
She’d pick him up and dust him off
And he’d let her down again
How’ve ya been
Glad you’re still breathin

He’d driven by a million times
He missed her shining eyes
Tried so many lines that never sounded right while talking to himself
But he dreamt of her cold flowing hair
Reflecting in the rear view mirror
And hoped that she could hear his words when last he’d heard she’d turned
To someone else

She used to make his heartbeat like a drum
Content to wait all day incase the next one didn’t come
To see her face could fill a space and change the shape he’s in
How’ve ya been
Who you been seeing?

Unrequited love of mine
Old unrequited love

And I don’t know where the time went
I just wish
That I’d spent
More of mine with you

He couldn’t help he thought of her to often to ignore
All he could have done before
Prevented his forward progress endlessly
But you can’t turn back a turned page
Even if you creased the corner
Should have let the lying dog she knew remain in slumber
Fast asleep
Out of sight and out of seen

He came crawling back to her to ease his pain
The sun had touched her skin and she had flowers in her name
Ivy in her first and Spanish roses in her last
She poured two shots of protestant and pressed the shallow glass
Against the lips
He’d kissed but should’ve savored at the time
He took the toast and left it all behind
She let him go but never left his mind

Unrequited love of mine
Old unrequited love
