She's all anticipation for the day when he comes home
But she must accept that more often than not she is alone
So she writes she's happy with an exclamation point or two
If it's on Facebook, it must be true.

She savours each snapshot of him then shares it with the world
Hoping each will be the one that proves she's such a lucky girl
Placing captions carefully for she has nothing else to do
If it's on Facebook, it must be true.

And so she tells ten thousand strangers he's the sweetest man alive
Spends her days composing statuses to prove that she's arrived
And she prays nobody notices she barely can survive
Because she knows he's almost gone.

One day she notices she's not heard from him in a while
And she can't afford the effort it is costing her to smile
So she hacks into his log and there the bits and bytes concur
That he's on Facebook, but not with her.


But he's the only person she has chosen to adore
She pretends she hasn't seen it, like so many times before
Then she finds his profile page and posts another "I love you"
If it's on Facebook, it must be true
It's on Facebook, who knows, it might be true.
