Name of Song: What if they won’t love you back

There’s an overwhelming pain of rejection,
That starts reverberating from your head down to your toes,
This lingering shock of no giving back,
A saddening response to your offer of love.

It’s tormenting as to what do you do now,
You feel worse than you’ve ever ever felt,
So hard to wrap your wits around a loss such as this,
The only thing you want to do is be left alone.

Chorus
You can cry, you can mourn,
You can scream, you can fight,
You can pray for some relief from,
Such an overwhelming plight.

You can take the higher road,
And somehow love despite your loss,
This takes guts beyond belief,
But the reward can be some solace.

We have all had this type of experience,
In some way or shape or similar form,
Although you feel you’re the only one in this hell,
It’s quite common among people here on Earth.

It’s so upsetting, that some don’t wish to even talk about it,
It seems like past shame gets all mixed up in this loss,
What do you do with such an overwhelming feel?,
Some don’t make it and then you hear about them on the news.

Chorus
You can cry, you can mourn,
You can scream, you can fight,
You can pray for some relief from,
Such an overwhelming plight.

You can take the higher road,
And somehow love despite your loss,
This takes guts beyond belief,
But the reward can be some solace.

There is a love that lives right under any upset,
There is a peace you can explore, if you talk it out,
It’s sometimes hard to talk it out with the one rejecting,
But if you can it’s quite a startling reverse for all.

Lives can be won or totally lost on this rejection,
Especially when young or with another we really love,
It’s such a vacuum that’s all too easy for us to fall in,
Thank god we all still have our own willingness to talk it out.

Chorus
You can cry, you can mourn,
You can scream, you can fight,
You can pray for some relief from,
Such an overwhelming plight.

You can take the higher road,
And somehow love despite your loss,
This takes guts beyond belief,
But the reward can be some solace.
