Birds of a Feather

Come over here and take a seat
We have many things to discuss
Please the leave the bottle on the table
You are not the same person otherwise
I am doing my best not to cry
But seeing how defeated you are...

You speak of how he ruined you
That liaison that proved fatal
Before, I’d just ask you not to blame yourself
Now I am begging for your answer
I am doing my best to stop your tears
and you tell me that...

You can’t save everyone
But I will try
You can’t save everyone from themselves
But I am not going to give up so easily
You may have lost your control
But you will never lose me

I held your hand as you spoke
of all the stability you have seen depleted
Sometimes romance is never the answer
but you’ll gladly falter for a shred of happiness
I am guilty of the same patterns
we allow ourselves to be used
What birds of a feather we are

You can’t save everyone
But I will try
You can’t save everyone from themselves
But I am not going to give up so easily
You may have lost your control
But you will never lose me

So you leave once again
Walk the harrowed road to nowhere
If I could only help you
and show there a life without complication
If I knew of such a life
I’d be able to help you

The End
