Liner Notes: 

You've got to really want a relationship, i see some who say they do but never have any intention of doing what it takes to start and or continue one.

Lyrics: 

V1 You’ve spent your life looking
For that guy guy called Mr Right
Someone to stand up for you
Always carrying your light

V2 But your standards were so high
You scared them all away
And sitting there alone
Is the price you had to pay

C Even the white knight on his charger
Is old, his hair turned grey
Even he was turned down
Much to his dismay

V3 You never considered compromise
It was your way or not all all
Made the hardiest suitor
Stop dead then withdraw

V4 To be honest they never stood a chance
Was more like a masquerade
No one really had a chance
To make your impossible grade

C Even the white knight on his charger
Is old, his hair turned grey
Even he was turned down
Much to his dismay

V5 Im not convinced you really tried
Just going through the motions
Just to appease your friends
And done with no emotions



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

What a cool tale. I have known people like this. A work colleague had a list of criteria for her suitors and wondered why she was single!! A bit like what you have put in your second verse. A very nice story for the prompt

Very good writing. The old knight with grey hair is a poignant symbol. I would be interesting to have a companion song where the woman explains why she did what she did.
