Love’s offline – a song

I started out thinking along the lines of Sleepless in Seattle, You Got Mail, obvious cliched rom-com tosh…but the lyric evolved and it’s now quite ambiguous I hope. Is the protagonist simply downhearted because he cannot connect to his lover online, does she even exist in real-life? Or, is it a long-distance relationship? Maybe it’s his significant other in the real world, but she’s gone offline figuratively speaking, they had a row, it’s a hiccup in their relationship. Has he done something so bad that she’s turned her back on him, she’s offline, off-limits? Perhaps it’s all over, maybe it’s just the usual ups and downs, love’s ebb and flow, maybe they can reconnect again, maybe he should’ve given her a piece of his mind, but then their words really would be out of time and he knew that way he’d fail…

Love’s offline

Days when your love’s offline,
Happens once in a while
You just have to smile on through it

I know it’ not easy, but try
Wonder if you’ll ever find
some kind of peace of mind

Times when it’s harder to play
You just have to throw the game
It’s the only way to get through it

I know it’s not easy, to cry
Wonder if you’ll ever find
you can stay, just the same

You’re staring at the mirror and emptiness prevails
You can’t take no for an answer
’cause you know that way you’ll fail

Days when your love’s offline
Happens once in a while
You just have to grin and bear it

You know it’ not easy, but try
Wonder if you’ll ever find
you can stay just the same

You’re staring at the mirror,
but it’s all to no avail
She won’t take no for an answer,
And you know you’re bound to fail

You move like you think you’re in time
But you hear everything they’re saying
You know it’s not all in your mind

Day’s when your love’s offline
Days when your love’s offline

Gotta reconnect this time
Find it hard down the line,
To never give a piece of your mind
When your worlds are out of time
She takes her love,
She takes her love offline

You’ll see that you’ll be fine,
Never gonna change her mind
It happens all the time,
when she, takes her love,
she takes her love offline
