In another lifetime, I waited
As you lay dying on a battlefield
Today, that battlefield is your life
Your heart, pierced through again
But this time, it wasn't a long spear
You've turned cold since we last met
But you still remembered me, didn't you?
That's why you came back...
And, why you pretended it wasn't for me
I suppose sexism dictates women don't matter (what a bore...)
Tell me, is it exhausting? Always playing the fool???
It's okay to choose yourself, you know
You're not a sacrificial lamb
Martyrdom is just another form of self-sabotage
An excuse to keep yourself from happiness
You're like a marionette...
And society continues to pull your strings
You're forgiven. Again.
I still love you, of course
And you, you are deeply in love with me, too
We have not met our full Destiny
So, this will all repeat
Until the karma burns (or, we do...)
Your anger makes you easy to control
Your stubbornness, a detriment
And as a result of that deep, deep fear in your gut
You've allowed yourself to be manipulated your whole life
What a pity...
The strength to permanently break free...gone somehow
You only give yourself temporary authority to make temporary change
Then wonder why happiness is so elusive
Why can't you have what others have???
The answer is simple...but you won't like it:
You don't want it.
You get more reward(s) from misery....
Truth be told, it makes you an easy target
You believed I was, too, didn't you?
But you only hurt yourself
Because, you'll think of me until the day you die
You traded your heart for your ego
That doesn't make you terribly clever
You've waited so long now
You probably feel you can't reach out
Even if you want(ed) to
But that's just ego again
You'd met your lucky star...
Such a shame.
