lyrics

Honestly?!

I don’t know why
I even try
To get up off my ass to look around
And see what I find

When you deny
That I apply
To your search for a satiating love

Why not me?
I'm here unseen
It hurts to be
As overlooked as a tree

And it’s so sly
How it gets by
All my radar’s best intentions
To slide through and divide

Even when shy
It will find my
Cerebral pride hiding in the open

It's no lie
It's my pride

And we can both lie
Yeah, we can compartmentalize
All sweet hope into bitter cages
With our misplaced prides

And love only denies
Those who won’t cry
Those who will not feel for the truth

Silly me
Honestly

And what happens to me in your story
Where do I fit in to your glory
As I fade well into your memory
And am no longer your dear quarry
Good luck!
