I keep thinking if the ego had a song it would be that one by Meatloaf, "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad."
Remember it? It goes:
Baby we can talk all night
But that ain't gettin' us nowhere
I told you everything I possibly can
There's nothing left inside of here
And maybe you can cry all night
But that'll never change the way that I feel
The snow is really piling up outside
I wish you wouldn't make me leave here
I poured it on and I poured it out
I tried to show you just how much I care
I'm tired of words and I'm too hoarse to shout
But you've been cold to me so long
I'm crying icicles instead of tears
And all I can do is keep on telling you
I want you, I need you
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you
Now don't be sad
'Cause two out of three ain't bad
How about it? Perfect song for that guy, huh?
Plus also, how about this one, "Looking for Love (In All the Wrong Places)" by Marc Almond?
