How Can You Deny Me?
How can you deny me?
When you're not even willing to try me?
When I wanted you to love me yesterday,
How can you not have anything to say?
When I want you to love me today,
How can you shove me away?
When I want you to love me tomorrow,
How can you just sit there & watch me sulk in sorrow?
How can I just walk away from what we had?
The answer is simple, I can't.
We're sitting on opposite ends of the bed & we're miles apart
What I have beating in my chest is now stone, no more heart
I wish you could put your magical hands around it & turn it back to flesh
But you're now gone & I have to start fresh
Being the man I know how to be
Being the father my children want to see
I have to hold my head up & keep going
In spite of the love from my heart that’s flowing
I guess if we were soulmates, were soulmates no more
And I guess since we're done you no longer love me to the core
I can't help the way I am being a hopeless romantic
But I have to turn my back & say goodbye no matter how much I'm saddened
