One day I must stop you from dragging me down
You are so controlling
Others whisper your deceit to me
I am rooted in confusion

For this thing called love
It’s really company I seek

I have no sense of humour anymore
No money
No future
My compassion for you is too generous

I am feathering your nest
Whilst mine dwindles

You lay your heart in a mirror
Fail to see a man in need
You fail to see a user

How do I break this shackle?
Wish I knew

It all comes with heartache

You are treating me with contempt
But worst of all
I pay you to abuse my kindness

That’s why I am drowning
