The moment I laid eyes on you
I began to put on a harness.
I hoped to find something true,
But all I got was shiny varnish.
And eventually that began to stain my heart
Then the toxins sank in,
But I still couldn't part;
I had the feeling of desire within.
I tried to hold on really tight,
Then I thought the resistance released.
We began to both take flight,
But that was just a tease.
I took a chance and just jumped
Hoping I'd land there in your arms.
Maybe that would fix our slump,
And I'd land safely away from harm,
But your catch, well it never came,
And the parachute never opened.
All my efforts they were in vain.
Your love was not an earned token.
Our love was never to remain,
And I fell only to be broken.
