maybe love is just for the movies
for songwriters and dreamers and such.
maybe love is only an illusion
to make us crave it so much.
maybe love is not at all
what it is made out to be,
about trust, compassion, oneness,
sharing secrets and intimacy.
maybe love is just a fairytale rhyme
that someone made up as a joke
to convince people like mi
(that) maybe there was some hope.
maybe love, the kind with happy endings
is about something we know nothing about.
maybe its all smoke and mirrors
and we truly can do without.
maybe we should stop pretending
and realize friends for life are grand
and true love like the movies
will leave you – heart in hand.
