lifeblood: songs: lyrics: true romantic

baby i got the best intentions
but i just can't do it
baby i got the truest aim
but i just can't win
baby i got a good vibration
but i just can't play it
baby i spent my only fortune
on the wages of sin
so you
you gotta be
extra forgiving
and you gotta be
super strong
you gotta be
a true romantic
i want you to look the other way
when everything goes wrong

baby if you took all the good stuff
and you put it all together
and you took all the bad stuff
and you threw it all away
would i still be the girl
that suits your fancy
would i still be the boy
that rocks your world

so if you get lonely
for the trouble and the chaos
and if you get bored
since you walked away
remember what i told you
when the night was darkest
you can leave me all you need to
baby i'm here to stay
and baby i'm gonna be
extra forgiving
and i'm gonna be
super strong
cause baby i'm
i'm a true romantic
i'm gonna look the other way
when everything goes wrong
