Hopeless Romantic © 2017 Stephen A Schuster

 

He’s a lonely boy who lives for her existence

She’s his only joy but he loves her from a distance

Never will he say a word

Never will his voice be heard

Never will her heart be stirred in spite of his persistence

 

He’s a hopeless hopeless romantic

Always ready for a, ready for a, ready for a fall

You can see the way he stands there with his heart held in his hands

Hoping it isn’t all that hopeless after all

 

He waits across the road to watch her when she’s leaving

She will never know, inside his heart is bleeding

When his secret love appears

Pictures painted wet with tears

Are all that’s left as souvenirs when memories start receding

 

He’s a hopeless hopeless romantic…

 

A woman of heartbreaking beauty will break every piece of your heart

Her arms filled with forbidden fruit, she seduces you straight from the start

Her eyes and her laughter deceive you ‘til she tears you completely apart

That woman of heartbreaking beauty will break every piece of your heart

           

She’s come to recognize this can’t go any further

He listens to her cries, pretends he hasn’t heard her

She’s his candle in the night

Shadows painted black and white

Hoping they might reunite in suicide or murder.

 

He’s a hopeless hopeless romantic

Always ready for a, ready for a, ready for a fall

You can see the way he stands there with her heart held in his hands

Hoping it isn’t all that hopeless after all

 

A woman of heartbreaking beauty will break every piece of your heart…
