oh boy, you've tangled me up into your maze of trick and cheat
here a blame, there a little love, but unbalance sowed the seed
t'is the last word you get, and yes, I might break that one, too
but eye to eye no longer works, when sorry's lost the new
admittedly, I am confused, and soft a kiss will make me turn
but hard are voice and sound it makes, to make my stomach churn
my love was small and tender but withered in the race
I cannot keep the words I said, I cannot lit the blace
forgive me heavy lover, for I know you meant all well
but loving you was most the time comparable with hell.
for now I have outcared, for now I cannot stay
as all the steps you need to make are out of my own way
too long the doubt has lingered and grown a thicker skin
no longer can I seek to please the offspring of your whim
I know you will be better, and maybe we will cross
for now I will no longer hope nor grief the pain of loss.
Here is the note long-needed, a charm for wiser times
reminds me that your sweetest words are conning verbal crimes
for every time you're sorry, I know you truly are
but twisted love is poisonous for any persons heart
I'll cherish our best but build an altar for the ill
reminder of the time it takes to nurse me back to well
please take no harm dear lover, the wounds will heal, be sure
what kills you not, scar it becomes, path taken to the cure.
