lyrics

Quick they’re pairing off
better find a match before the music stops
and you’re left alone
quickly sell yourself
or be a customer for someone else
or be left alone
you’re the one for me
or are you just a product of the urgency
to bring someone home?
it’s getting hard to tell
is that love or just another trap I fell into?

they say romance is dead
I think I found the corpse in my bed
they say romance is dead
but the ghost is living on and on in my head

who needs a symphony
when I can woo to R&B
from my mobile phone
you try to play the game
it seems like every day the rules are changed
and you’re left alone
why would you look inside
when you could just revel in the boasts and lies
I can’t believe
you say it’s sink or swim
does that mean the current that I’m drowning in
was made by me
I can’t believe

they say romance is dead
I think I found the corpse in my bed
they say romance is dead
but the ghost is living on and on in my head
