Try Again

This is an old song I'm growing fond of. It wasn't very cool to like it at the time but now I do, and I just realized it has the best lyrics.
You may recognize these guys - Lucia Moniz is the maid from Love Actually and Nuno Bettencourt is the guy with the gorgeous black hair from Extreme (More than words, anyone?). Apparently she's married to Nuno's nephew, so they're sort of uncle-niece - very odd!

Here are the lyrics - simple but brilliant:
One look
you know that you've fallen
she knocks you over
you say this is it
Perfect - straight from a movie
He says all the right things
You know he's the one
Next time around try again

Weeks pass
Still kind of perfect
my heart's removed now
I gave it to you
Passion - you constantly move me
further and further
reaching my soul
Next time around try again

Tonight - plans for a movie
you call me to cancel
girls going dancing
Sundays - our romantic picnics
turn into football
boys will be boys

Now months pass
knowing you love me
I've taken you forever
together for granted
Next time around try again

Home late
you won't even kiss me
The eyes of my angel
accuse me I'm guilty
Follow me
to my friends' house
hide 'cause we're dying
Jealousy is cancer
Next time around try again

You never give me any space
or time to breed
Try again
Sometimes I wish you'd leave alone
and get away from me
Try again
I can't believe you'd say these things
if you're in love with me
Try again
I never thought you'd ever say
those awful things to me
Try again

Oh no, the roses I gave you
are suddenly fading
along with our love
Who cares
the credits are rolling
love's just a movie
there's always an end
Love is what it is
It just is
Love is what it is
It just is

I love that the song grows as the relationship decays and the ending is fantastic - Love is what is it, it just is.
