From “Like It Or Not” (2001)

by Bob Malone

You want love unconditional
You wanna look down from a pedastal
On a man who’ll be responsible
For all your dreams coming true
And I’ve tried, but trying’s not enough
It ain’t a substitute for real love
And I’m aware of what you’re dreaming of
I just can’t give it to you

‘Cause even as I lie beside you skin to skin
I’m naked on the outside but overdressed within
And all the love I feel for you, it ain’t worth a thing
Without the love that is missing…

How can I love you so much
And still have a part of my heart
That remains untouched
How can I love you so much
And still not love you enough?

And so you cry because I can’t explain
Why I’m not in love but I choose to stay
As if I’d rather see you in pain
Than not see you at all
And I curse myself every minute
‘Cause every part of me but my heart is in it
And I can’t pretend to be indifferent
But I can’t break down these walls

So it really doesn’t matter that I’ve given everything I can
‘Cause in the end the blood of this love affair will be on my hands
And I wish that I could tell you why I’m the way that I am
But that’s the one thing I don’t understand…


And you say:
What have I done, what have I not done
What’s the solution, there’s got to be one
But I can’t intervene, this is strictly between
You and my heart
All I can do is watch us fall apart….
