Lyrics

I see you there with your head in the sand

Pen scratching paper, heart in your hand

Looking for words to make her understand

All that you’re feeling inside

 

Poor boy I’m sorry to say

All of your poetry won’t make her stay

She doesn’t hear and she’ll never see

Unmoved by your poetry

 

I know you mean well, I know you’re sincere

I know you’ll say what you want her to hear

Beautiful words to keep her right here

So why is she walking away

 

Poor boy I’m sorry to say

All of your poetry won’t make her stay

She doesn’t hear and she’ll never see

Unmoved by your poetry

 

Love doesn’t come with steps you can learn

Hearts never follow the rules

Sometimes it’s just in the way that the sun shines

Turning us all into fools

 

Poor boy I’m sorry to say

All of your poetry won’t make her stay

Those similes and that metaphor

Won’t make her walk through that door

She doesn’t hear and she’ll never see

Unmoved by your poetry

Unmoved by your poetry

Unmoved by your poetry
