This is the 3rd installment in the tale of a modern day love story of a metalhead.


It's Complicated

It started out so innocently
What turned out to be more than a fling
Sneaking a peak out of the corner of my eye
A quaint little secret best left to hide

Hoping and dying and seeing and believin
Choking on our new reality
Plotting and pleading and bleeding and teasing
Saving up for the finale

Is this the headline for me
It's complicated
An unconscious romantic dream
It's complicated
Fairy tale dust all over me
It's complicated
Is this momentarily
It's complicated

My number one fan sitting so quietly
Dying to love but acting cowardly
A hush back and forth is what it seems to be
The reason that this seems to be so appealing

Anxiously waiting and sitting patiently
A tireless act in futility
A year has gone but what's left for me
Enough is enough where is your mercy
