I Just Can't Win

I try repeatedly but i can't win her heart
Each attempt left falling in the dark
I try over and over but I'm slowly running out lives
As if I'm fighting a knight with a small, dull knife

I change my technique almost every day
Trying to win your heart in many different ways
But in your heart i just can't be
I don't seem to have the skills to compete

Through many sleepless nights i continue to play
In constant hope for victory one day
My eyes set on the glorious prize
To kiss my queen, and claim her as mine

I lay in bed and continue to think
Eyes watery so I'm scared to blink
My mind struggles to comprehend
The reason why I Just Can't Win
