Broken Lover’s Pride

I can’t say I love you
For you love another
I can’t hold you close
For the distance between us is far

I’m not supposed to love
All I ever do is fail at it
And yet here I find myself
Once again, falling in love… with you

I search for perfection in my life
Even though I know I’ll never find it
And in this man who is always on my mind
Is the perfection that I find

However, I can’t say I love
For you love another
And I can’t hold you close
For the distance between us is far

So I guess I’ll go on
Feeling what I feel inside
Holding back the pain and hurt
That comes with a broken lover’s pride
