The whole town's laughing at me

Yeah, I had your love right here
In the palm of my hands
And I lost it and I lost it
Had a love so real, when a man can truly feel
And I lost it and I lost it

And maybe if I had spent more time with you
Maybe then, maybe then you'd still be mine
Oh and only if I had been just a little more kind to you
There'd be no need, for this man to be cryin'

The whole town's laughing at me, yes they are
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good thing?

The whole town's laughing at me
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good thing?

Had my dream so near
I could reach out and touch it (I could touch it)
But I lost it (and I lost it)
Oh Lord, I lost it
Had a world complete
It was, oh, so sweet
(And I lost it) and I lost it
(I lost it)
Oh Lord, I lost it

And maybe if I had spent just a little more time with you
Maybe then, maybe then you still be mine, alright
And only if I had been more, more kind to you
There'd be no need, for this man to be cryin'

The whole town is laughing at me, yes they are
I know what they're saying, baby
(Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good thing?)

The whole town is laughing at me
Oh no, I don't like what they're saying
(Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good thing?)

Oh, alright
Well

And maybe if I had spent more, more time with you
See maybe then, maybe then you still be mine
And I might not have to think about it
And only if I had been more kind to you
See, there'd be no need, for this man to be cryin'

The whole town's laughing at me
Yes they are
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good thing?
The whole, whole town's laughing at me
I don't like what they're saying about me
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good thing?
The whole town's laughing at me (alright)
Silly fool, how'd you lose such a good thing? (well, well, well)

    General CommentIn modern-day language, this guy had the girl, knew that she liked him, but for whatever reason, he did not treat her like someone he was serious about. He probably decided to go "ghost" on her at some point, meaning losing contact with her because he thought that since she was a good girl, she would be waiting when he decided to return. Meanwhile, when she does not hear from him over the course of a couple of weeks, she goes through some self-esteem issues wondering why he left her. Was there something wrong with her? What did she do that made him lose interest? The guy--realizing at some point, that he had something very special after his quest for finding something better doesn't yield any results--contacts the girl out of nowhere. She entertains him for a bit, but he never apologizes for the pain she went through, probably because he doesn't understand the depths of her pain. Everything seems fine for a day or two, but she no longer trusts him as he goes ghost and there are pockets of time where he can't be found. So, realizing she doesn't want this type of unstable love, she decides to let him go. Now, he is going crazy because he thought that he was God's gift to her, but in truth, it was the other way around.
