One by one, my friends all counsel me
Why do you give him the time of day?
I don’t, really – I protest weakly.
does my heart, my thoughts, my face betray?
We see you waiting, hoping he’ll ring
you sit with us but your mind’s astray
ears strained for that SMS ping!
a text from him to take you away.
you wait and wait forever it seems
though you come out for tea and dances
you have that look of passion’s sweet dreams
of love and fairy tale romances …
But no message, no call, nothing from my lover
and soon I come to my senses – it’s all over.
