Lean to the left.
They lean right.
Dance in circles
And they'll stay quiet.
This is a game of balance.
One person mustn't topple over,
Or one person can't depend on the other.
That's what she thought
Until she saw you lean on someone else.
You leaned on someone just like you
While I held my breath in silence.
I tiptoed to keep peace.
I said what would make you happy.
I cried my tears alone.
You lied to make the situation better.
You made the pieces of our game
I'm leaving you to pick up the rest.
There's no more need for me to stay
And watch you throw
The rest of our friendship away.
But as I leave,
Hear me say,
"Watch me be happy,
Watch me have fun,
And watch me depend on others
You miserable slug."
Here's to never tiptoeing around you ever again.
