This is an older song that never found a home on one of my albums. It was written for another artist who rejected all the songs I wrote for her. :) Describes the feeling of having wasted quite a lot of time on someone when you know it's been over for a while...


He sees me leaving, he'll never ask me to stay
Love an emotion, that only gets in the way
Of life, or work...he's the rational kind.
Love is the last thing, that would enter his mind.

If he were asked he might call me naive
Head in the clouds and my heart on my sleeve
If he were asked he'd express his dismay
Reality never was my forte

And I'm older now, God knows I'm no wiser
I can read the signs, a little better that's all
And I've made mistakes, but I know what really matters
I can stop myself, if I'm starting to fall.

Sometimes my heart feels, so battered and bruised
From all the years that I wasted on you
Sometimes my heart feels so cruel to be kind
And like a clock I just slowly unwind
