Your gonna follow your “true love”
Off a cliff someday
Thinking he will guide you to only
The safest places
Thinking he will bring you
To only happiness and joy
When all he's been doing all along
Is slowly drowning you with him
You thought you were keeping him up
But instead he pushed you down

For months he carried you
Up the stairway to heaven
So it only hurt more just when you fell
You let him carry you to the top
Only so he could push you off
So he could let you drop

You had too much faith in him
You were blinded by it all
You held his hand
Thinking that he would lead you
To some unforsaken land
You thought would be paradise
When he's actually leaving you to die
But you follow him because
Your blinded by his first impression

For months he carried you
Up the stairway to heaven
So it only hurt more just when you fell
You let him carry you to the top
Only so he could push you off
So he could let you drop

And even you knew that he'd drop you
But you let him carry you up the stairs anyways
You knew that right as you got to the top
He would just push you down
So why'd you waste that time
Letting him bring you there

For months he carried you
Up the stairway to heaven
So it only hurt more just when you fell
You let him carry you to the top
Only so he could push you off
So he could let you drop

Yet you call this happiness
Falling to the ground
Watching all your memories
Fall with you
Yet you don't make a sound

For months he carried you
Up the stairway to heaven
So it only hurt more just when you fell
You let him carry you to the top
Only so he could push you off
So he could let you drop

You were prepared for it all
You expected him to let go
But you can't say it didn't hurt
When he finally let you fall

For months he carried you
Up the stairway to heaven
So it only hurt more just when you fell
You let him carry you to the top
Only so he could push you off
So he could let you drop

You just can't bear to think that
He's not who you thought he was
So your still clinging to his shirt sleeve
Hoping he'll decide to pull you up
Just hoping he'll pull you back up
But guess what honey
Douchebags don't make the world go round


The author's comments:
This song is inspired by one of my great friends. She recently had her heart broken (for the second time) by a real jerk. I felt that she had to much faith in him and she trusted him to much, even though she knew he was going to just let her go again.

"...If the Thames that ran beside them...recalled a night where the moon shone as brightly as a shilling on the same boy and girl... and thought to themselves, 'at last, the wheel comes full circle,' they kept their silence."

WOW!! Soo good! I love how it's actually lengthy but good. Like the quality stays the same. Good job!
