No more stepping towards you
Our footprint prints wearisome
Paces has refuse to take adventure
Nor be displacing to your indecisive place.
I heard them asking, gossiping all around
If we’re anywhere to be found
Painful laughter they all exploded
Sincere love they showed, distracting you caught me hound.
Now I’m that lost love they loved the most
Irrational feelings though you’re more beautiful never the best,
Stolen from friends now it ends, hope I’ve learned how to live half-alive,
For what went back just came back around.
Seriously, you and I just pretend we knew
Thinking it takes soonest to fall in love
Thinking it takes more to understand love
Unfair love I waited all day long.
You crave not, hiding all regret
Lost in trance a no come back
Silly love tales from hanker to combat
Like a hawk swiftly you swerved, indecisive sincere love neglect
To others who lost me, love warms a bed
To the one I devote to, on her bed I catch a cold
Nobody believes there is an iced inside my soul
Snow in my heart glad I learned how to live half-alive.
Fallen hell no, I’ve grown way too strong
And above an idea to fall back in your arms
Not if you’ll be here, there or call me a dear
On your footprint is engraved regret.
