He’s attractive but cocky, a player who’s hard to ignore
She’s beautiful but cynical, having dealt with his type before.
His type toy with emotions, bad boys love that game
And they reinforce her belief that all guys are the same.
But he’s different around her, everyone sees it, so she wonders if he’s so bad
Opens up about his childhood, his hopes and dreams, his mum and dad.
She starts to let down her guard too when POOF, he disappears
Because he’s starting to really like her, this is one of his greatest fears.
Catching feelings is a no-no, the ultimate weakness he believes
What if he loses control, gets attached and then she leaves?
Or what if he hurts her? He’s known for his reckless behaviour
He couldn’t do that to her, she deserves a good guy to be her saviour.
She’s different to the rest, sees right through him, so straight-forward and strong
He could easily fall in love with her, but right now the timing is wrong.
Because his friends are all single and he has that bad boy image to uphold
At 22 he should be out exploring all his options, or so he’s been told.
A relationship will tie him down, so he abandons ship instead
Leaving her to wonder what went wrong, what signals she misread?
But he doesn’t explain his decision and in uncertainty her confidence plummets
As she wishes that she’d trusted her gut and hopes that one day he’s punished.
He feels guilty when he thinks of her, the girl who was different, funny and smart
She looks back and regrets the time that she wasted on the boy without a heart.
