No One Wins

Now it's all been said and done
And I guess you're really gone
Oh, I never meant to hurt you like I did
But I guess I tried too hard
And now it seems I've broken
My own heart

Well you know you really tried
Just to keep your pain inside
Now I can't forget the magic of your touch
How could I have ever loved and lost so much
I guess it ain't no secret now
I'm not so tough

Why does true love always end
Like a whisper in the wind
It surrounds me and it tears my world apart
Wraps around me as it swallows up my heart
And here we are alone again
Where do we start?

Yet another 3 am
You know this bottle ain't my friend
Where are you girl, do you ever call my name?
Are you lonely when you're walking in the rain?
Can we really love again?
Whose to blame?

But it's all been said and done
Yeah, I guess you're really gone
And I'll never feel your warm embrace again
I close my eyes and all this pain comes crashing in
Tell me why we play these games
No one wins

About this poem:
Basically, on this one, I made up a beautiful, sad melody on my guitar and needed some words to fit to it. So I sat around for like, 2 years waiting for them, and then they finally came in a rush and I jotted them down in about 3 minutes! Sometimes it's like that!

I really enjoyed this song! it's very true
trurorobonline now!
yep like poetry, cannot be forced. nice words.
can we hear the melody?
It is a complicated fingerpicking construct in Dmaj7, very much like Croce's 'Time in a Bottle.' I play it, but I don't write it, but that should give you some idea of what it is like.
Touching, sad, beautiful, fantastic song! Thanks for sharing it with us.
