Loverboy's Lament

Loverboy's Lament - John Paciga
00:00 / 00:00

I was there the night that Jimmy and Meaghan met

It was kinda sorta awkward but I don't think I'll ever forget 

How his eyes lit up when he was next to her

Then Jimmy was like, "Hey let's hang out again" and Meaghan said "Okay"

And suddenly Meaghan had Jimmy falling harder every day

And now it all seems like a blur

 

But ain't it such a tragedy 

That even the best strategy

Can leave a loverboy dancing on his own

All the girls worth falling for

Are the ones that leave you craving more

If only he had known

 

Couple weeks went by and Jimmy and Meaghan went to prom together

I'll say that limo ride was certainly one to remember

Seemed like they might've found the keys to each other

Meaghan was dancing away while Jimmy's feet were cold

But she loosened him up and saw in him a man so kind and bold

But she never saw a lover

 

And ain't it such a tragedy 

That even the best strategy

Can leave a loverboy dancing on his own

All the girls worth falling for

Are the ones that leave you craving more

If only he had known

 

He's had his poor heart broken before 

He's holding out and hoping she won't leave him at the door

And she don't wanna hurt him and watch him sink

He can bring her to the water but he can't make her drink

And I guess that's true for all the loverboys too

And I guess that's true for all the loverboys too

 

And ain't it such a tragedy 

That even the best strategy

Can leave a loverboy dancing on his own

All the girls worth falling for

Are the ones that leave you craving more

If only he had known

If only she had known 

If only we had known
