"It's human nature though, to deny ourselves what we want the most."

lyrics

A Circumstance

Subtle signs like ashes left
On a table, what a mess.
You should’ve cleared this up.
What am I to do now? What is up?
Lips as red as drunkards wine
Bathing me with those sorry eyes
Who is he to you?
Why look at me like that if he’s for you?
Like a damsel in distress,
Really, damn you, you’re a mess!
You should be with me but missed connections
Rarely come to be.
A circumstance beyond reproach,
Guess I should let it go.

Seen like a nice thing,
Themed like a nice dream.
Seemed I was fated for you.
No point in waiting,
Cause I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

One day while riding on the “L”
A sunny haze of drizzle fell.
By this point in time,
I had finally purged you from my mind.
Now was it meant, or maybe chance?
I saw you then at random glance.
I froze with bated breath,
And when we spoke I nearly lost myself.
As we made it to your stop,
You looked so sad as you got off.
It’s human nature though,
To deny ourselves what we want the most.
A circumstance beyond reproach.
Oh, I’ll just let it go.

Seen like a nice thing,
Themed like a nice dream.
Seemed I was fated for you.
No point in waiting,
Cause I guess it wasn’t meant to be.

And it’s all I want to know…
Are you gonna love me or should I let this go?

Subtle signs like ashes left
On a table, what a mess.
You should’ve cleared this up.
What am I to do now? What the f#(k?
Lips as red as drunkards wine
Bathing me with those starry eyes
Who is he to you?
Why look at me like that if he’s for you?
Like a damsel in distress,
Really, damn you, you’re a mess!
You should be with me but missed connections
Rarely come to be.
A circumstance beyond reproach,
Guess I should let it go.
