Have You Heard The News Today

Have you heard the news today?
He told her of his love
Have you heard the demons say:
"She's right there in your hands"

Took a chance that never was
Ever mine to take
I would do most anything
If there's happiness at stake

But a bigger mistake has never been made
I'm losing my mind as sanity fades
Uncertainty kills more than rejection
And pain is the price for love and affection

Lonely days and sleepless nights
Drowned him in blue
But he didn't realise
That he meant nothing to you

Played your games for far too long
Now it's time for one of mine
But if you only ever knew
That I'm just killing time

But deep down I know I cant help myself
My sentiment's clear no matter how stealth
I'm not the same when you're in sight
This is a feeling that I cannot hide..

    Had trouble with this one, the Beatles song with similar words kept coming over me. It's a pleasant read, really not sure about the way you've used stealth, it messes up the sentence construction, keep trying :)
