Completely

It’s an early quote to use
So forgive me for using it
But what Lana said is true
It’s you it’s you it’s
All for you
Although all that I heard tonight
Was so untrue

Chilling at the corner of the bar
Just minding my business
The guy walked in
And I couldn’t believe it
I swear I swear
My memory’s my witness
That guy walked in
And I couldn’t believe it

We talked and
We’ve talked on many occasions
But because there’s a motive
Behind what’s being done
We follow a directive

We must not argue
Or get too deep
Nor must we must fight
Or look as though we’re being sent to sleep
By what is being said or done

No wonder
Everyone’s coming undone

Because

It’s totally unacceptable to
Say what you feel
God forbid
You should come across as real!

Ah and there’s insecurity
And it’s not just in me
It’s in him and in her
It’s all a bloody tragedy

So
In order
To keep things nice and neat
Let’s just keep on bumping into one another
In bars and in streets

And when time starts running out
And we’re fraught with regret
Maybe we’ll think
Hey
After all
Maybe he was my best bet

But until then
Perhaps we’ll discover
That it’s not always about
Becoming immediate lovers

Perhaps the people in our lives
Who appear repeatedly
May just be significant

Or have I lost the plot
Completely?

To receive love, you have to give it...

I'll cut to the chase:

 

But because there’s a motive
Behind what’s being done
We follow a directive

 

OMG. Been there. Many times. The infrequent rhyme worked for me, and I normally prefer strict rhyme schemes or NONE at all.

 

And this:

 

To keep things nice and neat

 

I understand the safety.....and have borne the sadness. D., this truly spoke to me.
