lyrics

I met a girl, hair across her face
Gentle in her moves, elegance and grace
She let me in, I took her side
Some way to win, something to decide
I would sing to her of thoughts we've been ignoring, but love songs are boring

She knows a boy, glasses on his nose [I know]
Has a little charm, but needs some better clothes
He's getting old, grey in his hair
Sometimes he's bold, but not completely there
She would sing to him, a flood of words outpouring, but
love songs are boring

Everyone has loved; everyone has heard each tortured rhyme or misbegotten word
Everyone has tried to celebrate their muse, only to anger or confuse
Which is why you find when musically exploring,
love songs are boring

Everyone has loved, everyone has found
Some maudlin time, turned into a sound
We could write it out, words upon a page
Slighting the feelings we engage...

Still I'll sing to you, the one I've been adoring,
love songs are boring
