Mistletoe, why do you tempt me so?
Why do you give me such sweet hope when I should know better
I take you to my heart and hope you will bring her to me
Yet I stay and do nothing
Your promise keeps me fixed when I should be searching
When I am under your spell the future I should be making
The soul mate I should be tracking slips further beyond reach
Mistletoe, you provide such sweet hope
But it is not hope I need now
What I need is action
To find what my heart is empty of and plug the gap
To seize what life, what love has to offer
Mistletoe, it is better to be out in the world then under your garland
Waiting for fate, for her, to come.
