Sweet Wine and Cigarettes -- NEW

I was thinking about different personalities and this guy started pushing into my head.. Everything about him was on the surface and he disgusted me.. Next thing I knew there he was in verse.
Sweet Wine and cigarettes
Empty words and no regrets
Everything about you is temporary
True Love that lasts a minuet
A burning heart with nothing in it
Every lie you tells extraordinary

Is there anything about you that is real?
Any gift you wouldn’t rather steal
Any foolish risk that you won’t to take
Or any heart to kind for you to break

Sweet Wine and Cigarettes
Whispered lies and No Regrets
Have you ever felt a real emotion?
Broken hearts and shatters lives
Love affairs only you survive
Is that a just reward for their devotion?

Is there anything about you that is real?
Anything so precious you won’t steal
Any foolish risk that you won’t to take
Or any heart so kind that you won’t break

Sweet Wine and Cigarettes
Your failed Dreams and unpaid Debts
Your life never met your expectations
You turn your head to hide your fears
To laugh to loud to mask your tears
The real you is such a revelation
Is there anything about you that is real?
Any gift you wouldn’t rather steal
Any foolish risk that you won’t to take
Or any heart to kind for you to break
