The Lyrics


Were you changing so you could please me,
The things I didn’t like before? mmm
Well, I can tell you, to be honest,
You need to do a whole lot more.

The on-line dating was where we started,
Your photo came out quite a blur mmm
But when I met you, my disappointment,
I saw you just the way you were.

And from that moment, you made some changes,
You changed the colour of your hair, mmm
And as for makeup, there wasn’t any,
It seemed to me you didn’t care.

You tried to make some conversation,
I found your accent quite obscure, mmm
I just need someone that I can talk to,
It’s just a shame that you’re so poor.

You need to know that when we met on line,
You could be someone right for me.
But after meeting it was not so fine,
I knew that it could never be.

Oh, please stop crying, I’m just joking,
Although I said you were a blur mmm
I didn’t mean it, to be honest,
I’ll love you just the way you were.
