Lyrics

I can’t let bad luck get me down, You’re never sure quite what you’ve found.

Should I give a second glance? Should I give this one a chance?

Does she really make me smile? Does it get old after a while?

Should I give a little trust? Should I give into the lust?

 

Then I see, I’m not all that myself,

Is the bar too high? Don’t I need a little help?

Insecure as it seems, I’ll cut her a little slack,

Knowing she may need to, cut me a little back.

 

And if I take the leap, unsure if I’ll, land on my feet,

I can not lose my faith, though things may blow up in my face

I’ve looked in too many eyes, searching where, my future lies

I’m almost afraid to see, have I just found another, Insignificant other

 

So she passed the final test, She stands well above the rest

Finally eased my cautious guard, Am I making this too hard?

In my confidence I let her see, All the lesser shades of me

Selfishly I’ve focused on my needs, Oblivious of how it may be seen

 

Then I realize, I’m not sure where she stands,

This model of perfection is slipping through my hands.

Neurotic as it sounds, I cling to ground I’ve gained,

Watch her drift away, and shrink back from the pain

 

And if I take the leap, unsure if I’ll land on my feet,

I can not lose my faith, though things may blow up in my face

I’ve looked in too many eyes, searching where, my future lies

I’m almost afraid to see, How you all envision me,

I’ve looked in too many eyes, endured too many long good-byes,

I’m almost afraid to see, have I become another, Insignificant other
