Something About This

(1st Verse)
I’ve been chasing rainbows in the dark
As you pull the strings on my heart
Wondering where can I turn
I’ve been misled by the curves of your words
As I stand in the quicksand of the hurt
Wondering if I will ever learn

CHORUS:
I’ve leaned in too far, too quick and too fast
Something about this tells this wasn’t built to last
I’ve ignored the logic and leaned toward all the emotions
Something about this tells me you aren’t about devotion
Something about this tells me you are already gone
Something about this tells me I’m not wrong

(2nd Verse)
I’ve been running against my intuition
Finally seeing something inside is missing
Wondering if I will ever see the message
I’ve been walking alone hand in hand
Finally seeing you won’t ever understand
Wondering if I’ve asked all the right questions

CHORUS:
I’ve leaned in too far, too quick and too fast
Something about this tells this wasn’t built to last
I’ve ignored the logic and leaned toward all the emotions
Something about this tells me you aren’t about devotion
Something about this tells me you are already gone
Something about this tells me I’m not wrong

Bridge:
And the walls are caving in
You are no where to be found
And when things seem to get tough
You are not around
And the pain seeps further in
You twist the story every time
And our world seems to fade
You seem to leave my mind

(2x) CHORUS:
I’ve leaned in too far, too quick and too fast
Something about this tells this wasn’t built to last
I’ve ignored the logic and leaned toward all the emotions
Something about this tells me you aren’t about devotion
Something about this tells me you are already gone
Something about this tells me I’m not wrong

  1. Somewhere in middle of a deja vu.
    The lines are so expressive, especially the lines of the bridge part. I have been feeling something of that sort.. I guess my latest poem is somewhere lost in yours. Do read the the poem.. rowing away solitary and perhaps few poems of late are all digging the same old mud.

  2. We’ve all been there. Yet it’s interesting when we realize it, we tend to stay in the relationship. You know, give it one more try. Not in the least, now. My belief is “we met as strangers, we leave as stranger.” Or as one blogger I follow said, “I should have left it at hello.”
