BEAUTIFUL FAILURES

———————————- 

When your love burned so brightly

Like a phoenix at sunrise

I was trying too hard

Just to live through your white lies

When you told me how you feel

In a room full of small talk

I was damned by their small words:

“He’s such a beautiful failure”

How – they – love to scrutinise

Me – they love to criticise

My – songs on their radio shows

Played twenty-four seven

Songs for beautiful failures

They don’t know a thing about me!

They don’t know a thing about you!

 

When your love grew so cold now

My heart shattered like thin glass

See I’m crying right now

Not because of your tear gas

When you told me how you feel

It was like ice on my wind-shield

Where you scratched out these cruel words:

“You’re such a beautiful failure”

How – you – love to sermonize

Me – you love to sanitise

My – songs on your radio show

Played twenty-four seven

Songs for beautiful failures

You don’t know a thing about me!

I know everything about you!

 

When my face grew so old now

And my heart is so jaded

I was calling your name

Though the memory has faded

When you told me how you feel

When you rained on my parade

Where your banners bear harsh words;

“You’re such a beautiful failure”

How – I – love to demonise

You – I’d like to memorise

My songs on your radio show

Played twenty-four seven

Songs for beautiful failures

They know everything about me!

They know everything about you!

 

When your love burned so brightly

We’re all beautiful failures

We were trying too hard

We’re such beautiful failures

When you told me how you feel

We’re all beautiful failures

When they damned us with faint praise:

We’re such beautiful failures.
