those two had believed in a love which never changed
they had walked the passing seasons
they say its youthful ignorance
a love story of two run of the mill people.
he drags his heavy bag, a business man running up and down the city
a lifestyle spent passing things by so he can catch up
so distantly seperated from his dreams, he gets irritated, he gets confused
cause there’s rarely love encounters like in movies,
we rely on the people around us to help us look for love.
she’s just came to the big city from her town
holding suspicion and curiosity in both hands
everday going through these hard struggles…
and then love was born, they thought they could control the lines of
love never runs out, and feelings never change
at last they began living together
in a condo too elegant for thier age.
respecting each other’s privacy
it should have been kept well balanced,
but life is always complicated.
and one day in a bad mood, they growl at each other
even though they know their passion is cooling,
they let it slide, making like they don’t notice.
they pose as adults but
they can’t throw away their egos
falling asleep holding each other so there is some coherence.
“love never fades, nothing can defeat it” are these the tactics of pop
if so what should we believe then ?
it sounds all well and good, “to head to tomorrow” but…
because our love’s gotten complicated it can’t go back to friendship.
problems between men and women are always a pain
and then love was broken off
they swallow anything and everything and go on to the future, go away, go
