Why does it take so long

My life was good, quiet and peaceful
Along comes a girl who is looking
My days now change and I wonder whats next
My heart says she is lovely, so lets have sex

Questions arise and am unsure of the outcome
But her beauty is strong, so I stay on
We gather momentum and she makes me cum
I wonder if I should, as memories do hurt
But the days improve as she shows me love

Our dreams are good, but don’t know if I should
The distance is hard as we work and play
We finally get together, oh what a day
A place of our dreams has been found
Now to make it our ground

We go on a holiday, oh what a time
For this was one to remember
As we shared it together

We come back home and decide
It is now time to create our dream
As expectations are strong on both our sides
Then through haste and confusion we lose the ride

Now the dust has settled, we ask again
What do we do to find our dream
Again we let things go awray
Decisions were made and she goes away
Now I am left to see what went wrong
And find that my love is too strong
So it is time for me to follow
Hoping that her love is not to hollow

I didn’t know the decision was already made
As the past had won, oh what a shame
The program thats been set is too strong
Now my time has been shortened
And there was no way out
I try hard to make a difference
But just fall into the same old game

The truth is now known
But it hasn’t shown
As we both are confused
And don’t seek any help
So the love that was is now weak
Oh what a mess it all becomes now that love has left

Now fear has set in
The love of my life has just given in
For the past is too strong, so now I must let go
It is hard when you love someone so

The stress is so much
That I lose my touch
And finally the end does come
Without any fuss am told to leave
Because the love was lost to the fear so strong
It was a shame as I had just worked it out
But found it all too late
As the stubbornness was too great

Now I have left and the love stays strong
I hope that another does comes along
Why does it take so long?

I shared what I was thinking
Hoping that it would sink in
But your mind was gone and the decision made
I know your heart and soul
It was a shame that we didn’t do more
I love you

Goodbye my love
I learnt my lesson, did you?
