This Dating Game is Like a Ten Ton Truck Running Me Down – Written December 2009 (Aged 34)

This Dating Game is Like a Ten Ton Truck Running Me Down

this dating game
it is like a ten ton truck running me down
i try to laugh it off
this obvious rejection
but it leaves me with insecure direction
this dating game
it is like a ten ton truck running me down
it is setting fire to my soul
it is like me being at a bowling alley
and being asked to bowl
i try to sell myself
to people who obviously do not care
they say they are open minded
and all they want to do is share
i ask them, why?
they just look down
and then a little piece of the truth dies
as they say, they just have not being found
this dating game
is like a ten ton truck running me down
does the driver use their horn?
because i never seem to hear the sound
