This is the type of situation that happens to everyone at least once in their life. ? . When someone you like turns you down, but starts dating someone who looks exactly like you, except a bit fatter. Now this is one of those super-true stories from my life, that I didn't exaggerate for comedic effect, or fully make up because my stable love-life doesn't give me a lot of funny stuff to write about.
I don't have to do these things because... We've all been there. Am I right fellas!?
Don't yell back at your computer. I can't hear you, and I'm already done writing this. I can't respond.
Even though this heartbreak is months, no years, nay a decade old, I only just thought to write about it last week. I brought some freshly penned lyrics and my heavy head to Ridders Van Rijnauwen , an incredible Dutch band, and they agreed to help me get this off my chest.
What we ended up with was a pretty decent tune that I can't wait to bring home to the Long Holidays in two weeks.
I was drinking, and smoking,
and drinking some more.
they'd seen me before.
"No that wasn't me
But I know the impostor!"
Forget the poetry I sent her
Forget the ballads that I sang her
She chose a guy from the same cut as I
Sleeping with my dopplebanger
I had a coffee
and I had a scotch.
Remembered the times
when we used to watch
and get really high
throwing empty bottles by the docks
While I walked it off
by chance I found
myself in a mirror
with a few extra pounds.
While shaking hands
I asked 'How was the dance".
Guess I'll go and make it one more round
