The Price I Paid

It's about when you put aside the people you love for another goal or ambition, and how easy it can all go wrong

Victory comes with momentum

Propelled skywards I can see the spots on the sun

Separated and my friends are long lost

Expectation turns into another cost

 

When I finally crash and burn

Exile calls because there’s nowhere to turn

Disintegrated and I’m long lost

I became a God at any cost

 

I loved her and I soared

Wrapped her in a world I adored

But the light has faded, pictures torn from the wall

This is the price you pay for being God

The price you pay when you fall

 

Love presents itself as an obstacle

In vain pride you forget it’s so easy to fall

I grasped a little piece of heaven

But hell finds those engulfed in pride

 

Now I’ve finally crashed and burned

And the wheels have fate have finally turned

In mourning for all that I’ve lost

I became a God at any cost

 

I loved her and I soared

Wrapped her in a world I adored

But the light has faded, pictures torn from the wall

This is the price you pay for being God

The price you pay when you fall

The End
