"Love all, trust few, do wrong to no-one" - William Shakespeare


i was looking forward to a new year
new start, new life and no fear
but it didn't work out quite like i wanted my dear
i keep trying, keep prying your hands from my waist
but your grip is too strong, as i look at your face
remember when the only thing between us was satin and lace

but back to reality, in all actuality
you're gone, you've moved on
to your latest victim
and i guess i'm just gunna coast along
what else can you do when it all goes wrong?

each day dawns with shadows on my face
so it seems i gotta find sunshine some way
but pretty new things like that satin and lace
aren't always promises of happier days
and with that, i'm sinking fast
one thought of you and i feel myself crash

back to reality, in all actuality
you're gone, you've moved on
to your latest victim
and i guess i'm just gunna coast along
what else can you do when it all goes wrong?

and guess who's still sitting here thinking of you
do you ever even think about what you do
what you did, what you're doing to someone right now
and i know in my heart she's falling apart
like the million others you've conquered somehow

but back to reality, in all actuality
you're gone, you've moved on
to your latest victim
so i guess i'm just gunna coast along
what else can you do when it all goes wrong?

I love this! I actually sang this while reading it! I loved the "Back to reality, in all actuality" part and "What else can you do when it all goes wrong?" part. :D Keep writing!
