about

Inspired by 20 year-old me. About the unattainable love interest who's with someone else and that defeated feeling you have when you see them together. The "bad man" was probably a perfectly nice guy!

lyrics

Looking Like The Real Thing
©2016 Neil Porter

Not much more that I can do
I just wanna get through to you
I’ve got nothing left to say
Pack my things and go away
I try to see your point of view
But there’s a bad man standing next to you

You don’t know what you put me through
I just wanna get close to you
Feel like I’ve been washed ashore
I can’t do this anymore
I try to see your point of view
Bad man standing next to you

I couldn’t help myself
You were looking like the real thing
I had to stop myself
Stop myself
I’d get down on my knees
But you know my skin is thin
Looking like the real thing
You were looking like the real thing

You with him that makes me blue
I just gotta get close to you
One day you might understand
I just wanna be your man
I try to see your point of view
Bad man standing next to you

Bad man standing next to you
Bad man standing next to you
Bad man standing next to you
Bad man standing next to you
Bad man standing next to you
Bad man standing next to you
