Awake in the darkness of night
Thoughts become aware
Did you care?
Hidden behind smiling lips
A scheming mind filled up with tricks.
Cooking up dishes served cold
What made you feel so goddamned bold?
Inducing emotion just to smother
As you run to the arms of another.
Thinking that I’d be so blind,
Turning our love into crime,
Hunting me down from the start,
Playing the keys of my heart.
All the ways you amazed
To leave me just dazed
Like a mouse in the grasp of a cat.
But plainly what you failed to see
Was that I’ll always be free.
The gift I’ve been given is wisdom
Knowing that playing I’ll win some
And lose others, as I hover,
Free as a bird in the sky.
