Today’s prompt song is “Almost Lover”by A Fine Frenzy. For me it was a song that was pretty much on repeat eight-years-ago or so. It’s a beautiful song, see music video below:
“Almost Lover” – A Fine Frenzy
Sail the words across my fair skin,
The memories avail, and hurt within.
Words can’t express heartbreak so strong,
Words can’t make right, you did me wrong.
If you weren’t interested, you should’ve said so first,
If you were decent, pain wouldn’t have been a curse.
Almost lovers, the kind that hurt —
Woman the most; they’re the worst.
Almost lovers, leading you on,
Leading astray, in a sad song.
Don’t say you never knew, why the night ended tearful,
You’ll never admit fault; you’ll say I saw unclear.
Tripped on a step, shocked at such eyes,
Deep brown ocre, good-looks suprise.
Not an old-man, but still too old —
For barely a woman, thoughts untold.
She should’ve kept her distance — far away, turned around.
She shouldn’t have melted as wax, at your face proud.
Arrogantly you led her around,
Stupidly, she tried to astound.
Talking, fluttering lashes black,
Someone should’ve gave her a smack.
You were off limits, you should’ve have said, you knew but —
Didn’t care, liked attention, simple jerk, and man slut.
You hurt her greatly; her fault it —
Remains; for years cursed, her hurting;
For an apology that never —
Will come to her in forever.
Goodbye almost lover, no time to waste on you,
Life is happening, she survived, made it through.
Almost lovers, almost lovers,
They do what they do, hurt, shove–
You into reality, so you —
See they’re human, hurtful too.
Take off your blinders; modern charming has no class —
Sail the words of a liar fade; now really, “I’ll pass.”
