At the age of 18 can one profess A dying love for someone else When so young, When so much to live for And I know she wants me now But she won't in a while I'm growing older I'm getting balder Destined to be in love But when she goes out I fear she'll find someone better Even just for a second And that's all she'll need to break me That's all the time it takes But I love her... Yeah I love her Yeah I love, I love, I love, I love, love her And I can't help it, No I can't help it Discussing baby names and marriage dates when I was her age I had no facial hair And people always change But she swears that she never will But she will for a second And that's all she'll need to break me That's all the time it takes Yeah I love her... Yeah I love her Yeah I love, I love, I love, I love, love her And I can't help it, And I can't help but want her around And I can't keep my feet on the ground She's the life of my party She's the light in the crowd And I can't help but want her to stay Yet I can't keep my demons away I know that she'll see sense, And leave me some day. But I love her... Yeah I love her Yeah I love, I love, I love, I love, love her And I can't help it,

As a boy, I would dream And plan how my life would be How naive I was to think I'd want kids by 23 And my wife, I would meet Whilst we were skiving off PE O the Innocence of youth Think I'd meet her ages 13 Time, She is cruel She can make fools of us all She don't sleep, stop to eat She'll have you begging at her feet But with time, we will grow And what will we have to show? Only she can tell It was once, said to me By a pretty candle thief We are all guna die So have fun, make memories But for now, let me say Things don't always go my way Keep on living, keep on trying Keep my head up come what May

My old Nan said, she thinks that romance is dead, Now its all talking on your phones and sex before you wed. There ain't no wining or dining, just flirting on the internet instead. As right as she might be, that doesn't sound like me. I like to take a girl to dinner if its buy one get one free And later ask to kiss her, invite her back to Dave's for cups of tea. When I've done something wrong, I'll sing her her favourite song, And try not to sing out of key. No matter what my nan said Romance isn't dead. Its easy to see with all the sex on tv, that my nan came to conclude there is no chivalry. So I'm going to write a letter and address it to the sluts on MTV. I won't ask her to sleep with me, when i take to toby carvary And buy her a pudding as well. No matter what my nan said Romance isn't dead

It started out as lust And soon turned to a kiss The odds were against us As we progressed to this Holding hands at night And sharing single beds If love tears us apart I’ve started seeing red And I’ll keep you a secret and I won’t tell And I will be the secret that you can’t kill Try and find the words to get you round to mine To him I’m just a clown He doesn’t see between the lines You’ll never be my queen I’ve known that from the start And if the light never goes out I’m still standing in the dark And will be your secret and I won’t tell And I will be the secret that you can’t kill After all this time Does it eat away at you When you’re lying in his bed Do you kiss him the way you kiss me So until you find the error in your ways I will be the secret that you won’t kill.

Its always been hard to write sad songs To correct my mistakes and right all my wrongs But today these words came my way Ive loved and I've lost, many lines I have crossed My songs may seem forward, they connect all the dots but this time, the story is easy to rhyme Im not looking for a fairytale A cheap spin off for me will be fine just a girl who drinks whiskey she don't need to turn water to wine I'm not looking for a princess just a girl who'd get drunk with my mum/hard with me be a boy who gets the girl then maybe this don't need to rhyme I may act persausive, and sometimes complacent I hope there's someone, who's almost adjacent To me, in each kind of way I never have cheated, and I'm not defeated But lately it seems, my faith's depleted In Love, What would Mr Darcy Do?
