My "OKCupid song" about finding love online, successfully and unsuccessfully.

lyrics

Verse 1
I met him on a Tuesday, by Thursday he had facebooked me.
Didn’t think that much of it except for the way he looked at me.
Cause I’ve been down this road before; we’ll talk online a couple times.
Won’t be much but it’s just enough with some confusing pickup lines.

He never bought me flowers; he never asked me out.
Never confessed his undying love for me, but still there is this doubt.

Chorus
He’s the maybe one, an email away, an SMS away, a phone call away from love.
The maybe one. The might be right, if the timing’s right and the moon is bright enough.
The maybe one. An old face in a new place, a new face in an old place.
You are the one, just maybe.

Verse 2
He called me on a Monday night and asked me how my weekend was.
Said we should hang out sometime and go do something fun just cause.
He didn’t set a time, he didn’t choose a day.
He didn’t pick a place, but I’m hoping anyway.

He called me on a Monday night and asked me how my weekend was.
Said we should hang out sometime and go do something fun just cause.
He didn’t set a time, he didn’t choose a day.
He didn’t pick a place, but I’m hoping anyway.

Chorus

Bridge
Says he wants to keep it casual but we can still go out on Wednesday nights.
He wants to see other people, he asks if that’s alright.
But in my mind we’re getting married. We’re already walking down the aisle.
I can see our children so all I do is smile.

He just needs time. He’ll change his mind, if I keep trying.
But he won’t answer my phone calls, he won’t send back a text.
He won’t return my emails but I’m sure marriage is next.

Chorus
