A thousand petals
Wine and chocolates
Always perfect!
Perfect to me
Never perfect to you
A hundred proposals
And a hundred no’s
A thousand nights of tears
Heartbreaks and regrets
Tormented thoughts from all your no’s
Why “no”?
What’s wrong with me?
And once again
I try again
The perfect scene
A diamond ring
My charming smile
My special tux
And still you say no!
Give me a “yes”!
A “yes”…or something close to it
I crawl back into my hole
And swim in an abyss of tears
The shackles that bind me
 This has now become my mission
I no longer love you
I’m just…
I just…
And then it dawns on me
“I’m addicted!”
Addicted to your indifference
Addicted to your rejection
Addicted to your “no’s”
I’m an addict!
Lost in a cocoon of misery
A star-eyed lunatic
In search of a “yes”
From the lips of my tormentor
I no longer love you
What I feel is…
Come on!
I need a “yes”!
Free me from this misery!
Just give me a “yes”!
Say yes!
Please say yes!
