Song Lyrics - No Is All It Took

Updated on November 7, 2011

It only took a moment
For you to make a mistake
I only wanted to meet you
You acted like I was fake

What was I supposed to do?
Write a poem on the spot?
Tell you I play the piano?
Show you the soul that you forgot?

She lost at love
And didn’t even know it
How come it’s so easy
For her not to show it?
The man of her dreams
Was swept away by a look
But she didn’t smile
And no is all it took

I left with my bruised pride
But that’s the way it goes
She thought she was such a queen
Instead of love she’d rather pose

How can you meet a beautiful woman?
Everything I say sounds so lame
It’s like a game show sometimes
The losers wish they never came

I lost at love
And I knew it
How come it’s so hard
For me not to show it?
The woman of my dreams
Was scared away by a look
All I did was smile
But no was all it took

      @Emerald - Thank you!

      @jandee - Ha! You're keeping up! Hey... I've been rejected before. What man hasn't? But the ego is still there because the man is saying, "You blew it baby."
