Song Lyrics - Did You Really Think I Wasn't In Love?

Yes baby... I have a heart
Why do you seem so surprised?
Guess I acted too much like a man
And not like my mom advised

Yes baby... I feel the pain
Weren't we happy? Why is there hurt inside?
I tried to be the man I thought you wanted
But instead I was full of too much pride

Did you really think I wasn't in love
In love?
Did you think you weren't the one
I was thinking of?
Thinking of?
Did you really think I wasn't in love
Not in love
Not in love

Yes baby... I feel the passion
And I thought I brought it out of you
But now you're ready to give him your gifts
Because his love is shiny new

Yes baby... I feel the sorrow
Now that there's nothing between me and you
I have to walk alone and act like a man
The man I thought I was when I was with you

Did you really think I wasn't in love
In love?
Did you think you weren't the one
I was thinking of?
Thinking of?
Did you really think I wasn't in love
Not in love
Not in love

How can I forget what I know she will do?
How can I ignore the love she will give to you?
How can I wash my mind of her letting herself go?
How can I forget her body will love you so?

Did you really think I wasn't in love
In love?
Did you think you weren't the one
I was thinking of?
Thinking of?
Did you really think I wasn't in love
Not in love
Not in love

It does seem to express the feelings of someone who didn't handle a relationship the right way.

Another super-expressive lyric. I'm glad you refer to its protagonist as "he" - third person. . . .

I really love this and wish I could hear the music to accompany it. Definitely voted up.

Nellieanna.. thank you as usual... it's pretty real or is it? I'll never tell...

acaetnna,

Thank you... there is no music... I'm the lyricist for somebody's band someday... that's the dream... I have a few musician friends but we are all so busy we don't have time to just get in a room and spend hours and hours arranging... I wish I was 21....

Hey b.

You're probably right... keep saying it: "she's not worth it... she's not worth it..." Ha.... thank you for your nice comments.

Wonderful truth here. It would be great to let the words fly futher than the hub pages.

Thank you chspublish,

That is the next step but for now the faucet is wide open and the water needs to flow...

...reminds me of 10cc's I'm not in love .... you have a very arresting way of painting your words and creating an off-beat mood and letting your lucky readers know that - "Baby you've never seen words like these before!"

Thank you epigramman,

I've noticed your work on the "hot" and "best" section of the Books and Literature home page so I consider our opinion very seriously. What I mean by this is that you don't let ego concerns get in the way of appreciating another's work.

I remember that song. Very ethereal... "big girls don't cry... big girls don't cry..."

As for "...you've never seen words like these before" it's just my attempt to be original... I want to reach someone... bring them closer than they've ever been before... you know... make that impact on them... almost to the point of discomfort but in a good way where they are nervous and unsure...

Thank you Lovingu,

That is very kind... I hope so... as I tell others: "that's the dream..."
