Falling At Your Feet

I toughened up this year, after letting myself and my staunch views on relationships and how phony they actually are slide.  Before I toughened up I wrote this about a certain someone, probably only the third certain someone in my life I cared this much about.

 

I sense things are different now, so I put my thoughts away,

I shelve my fantasies, leadeth me not astray.

Your absence heard and felt, is swallowed by the mist,

And though I never understood why, it all came down to this.

 

And now you're back, it would take an army to stop me falling at your feet,

And though I couldn't know, it was in me to weep,

There's nothing in this world to stop me falling into deep,

Or falling at your feet.

 

Your letter still unread, I dare not break the seal,

You'd take back all the pain, I allowed myself to feel.

So my letter back begins, dear you I'm happy now,

I may still be alone, but at least nobody is walking out.

 

So now you're back, Stay outside where the cold around you forces you to be

The one who's looking in, at where you used to be,

And wondering why I am no longer falling into deep,

Or falling at your feet.

 

(Instrumental)

 

And now you're here, It still would take an inferno to stop me falling at your feet,

And though I didn't know, dirty water runs so deep,

It would take a tsunami to stop me falling at your feet,

Now I understand the strength, it takes a man to weep,

It still would take wild horses to stop me falling at your feet,

And try and try I may, to hold my ground and hold the street,

You watch as I throw myself headfirst to the ground beneath your feet,

I'm falling in too deep.

 

The End
