THE RULES

You thought
You had it,
from the start
I’d have to at least love you
For you to break my heart.
It’s strange
Slightly deranged
You feel alive
Cuz I’m young and insane.
Really sweetie
It’s just a game
That we’re playin’
I flow
Like a shadowy fish
Through your veins.
Confused
Cuz you thought
I loved you.
By my gestures and suggestions
In the moments of seduction
I mean at you age
Don’t you think that’s a bit pretentious
Presumptuous…of you.
Cuz once in a while we seclude
I really only want you
When…….
I’m in the mood.
The moments last
No longer than
You do
Or the morning star
When it’s over
Gone you are.
From my mind
My line of sight
No really
I’m alright
But you want me to cling and call
Come on man
You want it all.
I’m not yours to be had
So sad
Cuz I knew what it was in
The beginnin’
OK so it’s good
Sometimes
You escort me around and we dine.
When she calls
I don’t complain or whine
Cuz really I don’t mind
You want me to be only yours all the time.
You’re fallin’ hard
And that’s the crime.
And see the rules
Belong to you
Requested to protect
Your innocent main investment.
From what we do
But you’re slippin
It’s true.
Why? You beg me to change my mind
You whisper…I love you
That’s when I knew it was time
To say goodbye.
I find
Every time
It’s the same thing.
I soundly state
It was just a fling
No dreams of a wedding
Or ring
Don’t play the game baby
If you only wanna win.
Cuz in the end
Your heart, not mine
Ends up broken.
I followed the rules
Set in place by you
I knew it was too good to be true
You said you could handle the truth
You were above
All that romance stuff.
Fallin’
And slippin’
Into love
Don’t feel bad sweetie
it happens quite often enough
