Mind Tricks

Life is a game
Girls are the same
That's why she screams
As I dissect her dreams

She calls me a knight
But I'm really a hunter
She's lost her sight
Truly asunder

Girl's feel too much
Yet I feel too little
Playing with hearts
Gosh they're so brittle

I want a strong girl
Who can see through the mist
I say you're beautiful
Resist!

See past my words
Just see the meaning
Tower of cards
Jesus, we're leaning

I see I've just lost you
But look it's okay
You'll see through my madness...

Someday.

Nice flow and straight to the point. You can really hear the boredom and melancholy with women falling in love too easily. I like it very much. Add to favorites and 5/5 stars.   I hope you'll check out my work too.
