I don't lie
Never have, never will
I won't lie
When I tell you
What I'm going through, baby
It's kinda hard
To put it into words
But I guess your girl's
No better than me

But I had to let you know

Oh, baby, I'm not lying
We, we could be flying
Way past the others
Oh, flying
Make em look up at us
Oh, we could be
We could be flying

I don't try
To prove people wrong
I didn't try
When I wrote down this song, baby
I find it hard
To match all the pieces
But I guess your girl's
No better than me

But I had to let you know

Oh, baby, I'm not lying
We, we could be flying
Way above the others
Oh, flying
Make them call up to us
Oh, we could be
We could be flying

And I gotta let you know

Oh, baby, I'm not lying
We, we could be flying
Way above the others
Oh, flying
Make them call up to us
Oh, we could be
We could be flying

'Cause, baby I know you want something new
You can't be happy with the one with you

Oh, baby, I'm not lying
We, we could be flying
Way above the others
Oh, flying
Make them call up to us

Oh, we could be

We could be

Flying

I honestly don't mind the inequal stanzas. I generally don't read this type of poetry because it usually comes off as needy, but you avoided that well. I didn't get the attention-seeker vibe, and I always appreciate a piece that avoids that.  I love how used flying to invoke a mental image. I could see pain behind every word. If there was anything I could change, I would reword the line "What I'm going through, baby." It doesn't flow as well as the rest of th... (more »)
