When I was a teenager (literally half my lifetime ago), I used to make tapes for women I liked, usually because their tastes in music sucked and they needed my guidance (it may sound arrogant, but it was true). Anyway, I started out just being friends with this woman, and I made her a few tapes. I included one of my favorite songs by the Rainmakers (one of the best bands you've probably never heard of) called "No Romance:"

Then I wrote her a letter saying I didn't want to go out with her anymore, probably in a clumsy, tactless way (though I can't remember the words). And wouldn't you know, she wrote back and quoted some lyrics from "No Romance." I guess I deserved that.
Well you've come to the wrong place
You might find lines, but no valentines
Written all over my face
I bear no grudge, I wear no frown
I just come with calloused hands
And I don't mean to bring you down but
There is no romance.
