Lovers Are Lunatics

from by Cutaways



Hate it then love it, we keep it then shove it

We hide it then show it, we’re quiet then shouting out loud

Lovers are lunatics

Do it deny it, refuse it then try it, we sell it then buy it

We’re always in crisis

We’re hurt and hurting with deeds and words

And at the end of it all we will make do with something

Or make do with nothing at all, it’s not our choice

We should try to elevate ourselves to a higher state

Where faces are faceless, our bodies are featureless, longing is weightless, belonging is frowned upon

Viva Loneliness!

Cast those aspersions aside

Join the new generation of ex-lovers happy to love no more

No more believing the hype, lovers are lunatics in disguise

As the girl u want the boy you crave

The note you wrote, the call you made

The tree you chose to carve a name beside yours

Take the morning off to fall in love

That’s what it’s coming to

Speed-dating, speed-kissing, speed-lying, speed-fighting

Speed-babies, speed-wedding, speed-ageing, speed dying
