You changed my ways, you taught me how to love, but now what?
So you tell me to respect you, you tell me to be good, but for what?
I’ve put down my arms and opened them wide, ready to let you in,
But now that you have me, right where you want me, you’ll never want me again.
You say that at night, I haunt your sleep, and I wake up to find the blame set on me,
But dreams are your torments, not mine to live,
And yet I wake up sorry and ask you to forgive.
You wont let me have you, yet you won’t let me leave,
my heart open on the operating table, you watching me bleed.
And in this demise, I catch a glance
A look of distrust, disgusted lustful romance.
My hands are not as strong as they used to be,
They cant fight back without the power that you stole from me,
And where a mask of confidence once lay upon my face,
It was shattered by your kiss and it’s bitter taste.
Tears flow and sting my open wounds,
But to my sadness you are immune.
And happiness with you is just a passing trend,
Yet still you claim that you are my best friend.
But, we hold hands of broken bones,
and make our bed from sticks and stones.
What can I do that I haven’t already done?
How can I prove that I’m worthy of your love?
I fear that I’m trapped, strapped to the floor
I’ve given you my heart, i have nothing more.
So bled-out and empty, with a cavernous chest,
It’s time to say goodbye, it’s time for me to rest.
