Still Dreaming

I once fell in love with the thought of falling in love

But of course at the moment I didn't know what I was really thinking of

Perhaps I just wanted to imitate some notion of a fairy tale happy ending

That shit they try to sell us on the subliminal waves they are sending

I gave up when I realized it didn't work for my parents on multiple occasions

I didn't see their love fade but I felt pain from the scars and abrasions

Deep down I'm still foolishly hopefull, a true romantic at heart

But I know the disguise of falling in lust and it can tear your life apart

Several times I thought I was, I thought they were, but it didn't last long

Stupid little arguments where we're both left footed trying to make a right when chances are we were both wrong

I still have dreams of meeting that perfect someone who will compliment my life

Old traditions are a thing of the past so I'm just looking for lifetime friend not a wife

Someone who can get me lost as I stare at my reflection in their eyes

But the past has only taught me that relationships are only filled with promises and lies

So what if I'm afraid of the thought that I might one day fall in love

Some of the best journeys in life are the most difficultfor me to speak of

And it makes me feel pathetic as I write all of this down

I don't need your sympathy this is an upside down smile not a frown

I've hurt far too many times to forget that loneliness has always been there to comfort me in my time of need

So I know first hand that lust is just a sharp knife ready to strike with hastend speed

And I still dream because dreaming isn't real

Because love is a word used too loosely to describe a feeling that isn't real

I've had many moments in the sun through the good times and the bad

But I'd rather just be content being wanted than being had
