Not Your Life - Poem by Aram Stefanian

Love ain't gonna stay put for good
I guess, you thought you understood
Falling in love isn't that hard
Breaking you up, tearing out your heart

What's the reason for staying alive?
How safe did you last night arrive?
Is there someone on earth waiting for you?
Sharing your solitary unshared passion too?

How long are you gonna sit tight?
Painful emotions are giving you a fright
Into the infinite void you sent mayday
You bet, in love you went all the way

If not fed up with unfulfilled desire
Look for a right guy to put out a fire
You knew you'd pay highly for a fallacy
They blamed you for being guilty of heresy

That steady ache was buried deep inside
It's not your life in your subconscious mind
