So far away

So often misplaced

Silence doesn’t speak for the heart

Shallow attempts quickly fall apart

He acts like he doesn’t care but his heart calls his bluff

He loves his daughter but it’s not enough

She got her Prince Charming and her picket fence

But it came to her at her own expense

She sold her dreams for security

She had the perfect guy but still wanted to be free

She wasn’t greedy; she just knew she deserved more

She wanted him to fight as she showed him the door

She tells him to stay but it’s not for herself

She’s constantly thinking of everyone else

She puts on a smile as if to say fuck the world

But deep down inside behind the cockiness she’s a scared little girl

She’s hiding from the world everyday

He checks on her knowing she’ll claim to be ok

But he knows her inside and out

Her head is filled with doubt

She’s not in a good place

She’s afraid she’ll disappear without a trace

It’s been awhile but he remembers it all

She thinks she’ll be safe behind her wall

But she knows it will never be enough

He offered it all but it was too much

She’s hiding from the world everyday

He checks on her knowing she’ll claim to be ok

She tasted like strawberry fields

She made him fold as she kept up her shield

She melted his defense

He was helpless as he willingly gave no resistance

Her hands touched him like they were coming home

Her body quivered as she quietly moaned

He broke her walls so she had to run

All of her lies started to come undone

She loved him

And that was the problem
