LyricsEdit

I'm not allowed to love
Not allowed to fall
It seems that after all
Some rules must be unbroken

I'm not allowed to swoon
Romanticize or croon
The beauty of your eyes
Must still remain unspoken

But my head will be unbowed
I'm certainly no fool
I'm no fool
For I know
I'll always be allowed
To find exceptions
To the rules

I'm not allowed to love
Not in mid-career
There's just so little time
I can't afford to be wrong

Alternate verse:
I'm not allowed to love
Till they legalize it here
The kind of love I need has been
Forbidden so long

I'm not allowed to cry
Tremble, whimper, sigh
These signs of weakness are avoided
I must be strong

But pessimism must be disavowed
Life couldn't be so cruel
Be so cruel
And I know
A girl must be allowed
To find exceptions
To the rules

But my head will be unbowed
I'm certainly no fool
I'm no fool
For I know
We'll always be allowed
To find exceptions
To the rules

Say what you will
I'll hang on every word
I'll hang on every letter
But nothing's gonna change the truth
My night is better
Nothing's gonna change the truth
My night is better...
