Never Comes Along

Searching hard for some affirmation
from the ones who you think you love
Dropping hints in the conversation
will what you do ever be enough?
Now the truth appears in your eyeline
it's not that you've done something wrong
You realise you're wasting your time
chasing the approval that....never comes along

It never comes along
oh no, it never comes along

Trying too hard for the validation
of the one that you're yearning for
Instinctive fear of humiliation
leaves you gun-shy, you know the score
The harsh truth sits under your nose
and deep down you knew it all along
You're nothing, and that's how it goes
dreaming of an angel who...never comes along

She never comes along
oh no, she never comes along

Life teaches you to
disbelieve in fairytales
drop your childlike view
of the world and prepare to fail
Cos like everyone else
your existence offers bits of plaster
as you stagger unelped
from desolation to disaster

And a resolution...never comes along
it never comes along
oh no, it never comes along
you hope and pray - it never comes along

I don't dream anymore
life's more fun when you don't bother
I don't dream anymore
life's more fun when you don't bother
