She stood a little closer
Her hair brushed my arm
For a second, she looked at me
Dark eyes almost asking for what
She’d never want from me
She stood a little closer
Until she walked away

She will never love me
No-one ever will
That’s not that plan that’s been
For you or me
She’ll never hold my hand
Or mend this aching heart
How is one to finish
Without a start?

And she will never want me
To love or even care
That’s the last she’d ever want
From one like me
She’ll never hold me close
Prob’ly never call
It’s what I should expect
After all
