    (g)
    there was the alcoholic
    the one who couldn't face herself
    the thief
    the one who was neglected
    and she who could have been my queen -
    her stepdaddy messed her up for life
    and so
    went us
    I have bad luck
    in love I always have
    (b)
    Bad luck runs down my lane as well..
    One man can break
    All ya believe in….
    His thinkin is distort…
    Tryin ta tame..
    Playin in a game…
    What happen ta love…
    Then the carin
    Along with the
    Understanding…..
    Dayum I wanted ta be his Queen….
    Just think he would have been
    My King…..
    (g)
    with every failure
    hope shrinks like a dying flame
    harder to get back up on
    my feet again
    question myself
    make brutal comparisons to
    the successful
    feel like a freak
    hope erodes into
    apathy
    (b)
    Enduring
    I was….tryin ta be
    And got hurt…
    Questioning myself…
    Oh ways all me…
    Takes for dis ride…
    And I always seems ta get
    Left behind…
    Love aint for me…
    Messed with my pride
    Tore my soul….
    What a man
    Who can chain my heart
    Then just go…..
    (g)
    then there's the part where you don't
    see the possibility
    doesn't even occur or
    appear to be
    not even part of
    my memory
    hard to see
    what can be
    love shouldn't be a
    fantasy
    (b)
    Its out there…
    Dis i know…
    One day dat possibility
    Will show…
    For now it was a lesson learned…
    For you it was her
    For I it was him…
    Love…..
    A fantasy of a fantasy…
    One day I find my King…
    And ya find dat one Queen…

    When we feel we've been played it's so hard to see past that, but one day we will find that one who's meant for us. Well posed.
