I met a man I wanted and I wanted more
We got a little room up on the thirteenth floor
He’s made my life a misery this man I adore
I guess I’m just unlucky in love

I went outside to see him and I stepped on a crack
He’s like a bad old penny only he don’t come back
My heart is worse than broken it’s a full-on attack
I guess I’m just unlucky in love

I looked into my mirror and it smashed to shards
Misfortune’s mine for seven more years
Happiness in romance isn’t in the cards
It seems like I’m just destined for tears

A black cat walked across as we were lying in bed
Now every day that passes I’m a bundle of dread
A gypsy tried to help I didn’t do what she said
I guess I’m just unlucky in love


from Siren Song, released October 17, 2007
