Unrequited - Ani Difranco

He had all kind of reasons
Why she was unable to love him
She was just too young
She was too high-strung
She was afraid of commitment

But all of the theories that he recited
Played like a song of the Unrequited

And baby, how long has it been now
Since you held me to your chest
And told me that you loved me
More than all the rest

It's a shame that you won't talk to me
Cause I won't repeat after you
I believe that there is more to life
We coulda loved eachother through

But I was afraid of commitment
When it came to you

I tell you if there is one instinct
I just can't get with at all
It's the urge to kill something beautiful
Just to hang it on your wall

Are you just too young
Are you too high-strung
To actually follow through
On all the love you said you had
Baby, I never lied to you

Is all or nothing
Really the best we can do
