From the first time I spotted you, I knew you were going to be a struggle
An intricate challenge I wanted to unwind
It was a game, always a game
Who would end it first?
And who would end up hurt?
You were the strong shoulder for everyone’s tears
The late night pick me up when life was too hard
The old truck when someone was moving
Or the mechanic when someone needed towing
Always there, always helping
But, who was there when you needed protecting?
Pain is what drew me into you
It’s what we both felt the most
But, together everything subsided
Especially, when our bodies collided
We were good together
Even if we continued to deny it
You had her and I had him
Us together would always come to an end
But, we melted into each other like it was supposed to be
Because I needed you and you needed me
Neither one of us had someone quite like each other
Someone who brought us peace
Someone who understood
You made me feel whole like no one else could
So, I took a leap of faith
Not knowing it was a mistake
I said those three little words that were burning inside me
And I wanted to finally show you what life would be like
With me by your side
Like life’s greatest joy ride
You blushed at my words, but I instantly regretted it
You were not over her and I was just fun
You only wanted one thing
For us to be a late night fling
You were so much more to me
But, you couldn’t see
Love is blind as they say
And I was naive to think you would be different
I wasn’t asking for your commitment
Maybe, I just wanted your acceptance
But, here we are again. You are with her and I am with him.
It’s a game, always a game.
Who will end it first?
Who will end up hurt?
