When I Try To Love You

I must admit that I was warned

I never thought love would leave me scorned

I only feel I’m getting closer

The more I try to run away from her

My innocent heart

And soul’s torn apart

Every way points right back to the start

When I try to love you

All my hopes come tumbling down

When I want to see you

I scream your name all over town

I get hurt

There’s nothing but

I want to place above you

Every night

I have to fight

When I try to love you

When I try to love you

I tell myself it’s just another morn’

Just another time to feel so forlorn

No distraction is working at all

The more that I fly, the deeper I fall

My innocent soul

Is hard to console

How much longer would I keep digging this hole?

When I try to love you

All my thoughts come crashing down

When I want to see you

I shout your name all over town

I get hurt

There’s nothing but

I want to place above you

Every day

You make me pay

When I try to love you

When I try to love you

I really have to make myself understand

This is going nowhere. This has to end

Love is no good. It’s no good to pretend

When I try to love you

All my dreams come crumbling down

When I want to see you

My eyes seek you all over town

I get hurt

There’s nothing but

I want to place above you

Every night

I have to fight

When I try to love you

When I try to love you

  1. That is exactly how it feels. Exactly the same. …..eyes looking all over the town…..thoughts and hopes crashing down…..distractions don’t work…. And everything else.
    Overall it does really hurt.
    I loved reading this. It’s amazing.

  2. Frank – a little lesson in life for your own self-esteem , NEVER let anyone know they GOT TO YOU – go in a closet out of sight and cry – keep a stiff upper lip – take two and call me in the morning – all people should maintain their dignity
