Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.
You said I should ask her out, then you changed your mind
Then you said I should again, that's when
I knew I would, I had a secret crush
I wasn't in a rush, but then I hurried 'cause I worried
You would get to her first, but I had to win
And I did, I did it with a grin
It made me want to sing, made me want to shout
Although I had my doubts, I couldn't let 'em out
Wasn't careful what I wished, missed my turn to boast
Thought I'd make the most of it, I got so close, true love
Thought I loved her for a while, then I didn’t, then I did
Then I didn’t again, when
I realized I loved her all along
Now I sing a different song, it’s all sad and wrong
I’m not singin’ out loud, but I’m singin’ in my head
I feel dead, like my heart's been bled
I broke it off in between, 'cause I couldn't foresee
What would happen to me, now I'm painfully free
Know I made a mistake, too hard on myself
Guess I needed a break, it wasn't somethin' I could fake, true love
How can you tell when it's real?
When strong and deep is what you feel
Down in your soul, how do you know?
When attraction grows, but then it comes and goes
I knew we were a perfect match
Only after we fought and got unattached
When you're not sure, and you make it go away
But it comes back to stay, and time never makes it fade...
She bugged me for a while, really got on my nerves
Then she didn’t, then she did, then she didn’t again, when
I realized she didn’t bug me at all
But it was too late, and that was my fate
Too late and too proud, now I’m thinkin’ too loud
Guess I need to quiet down, 'till there's no sound
Like my phone that never rings, she never calls, I never sing
Might not ever again, sounds like the end
I can't sing without her, and it bugs me still
I guess it always will, it's a bitter pill, true love .... true love
