My body melts like sugar when
I'm wrapped up in your arms
I flow just like the river
after a raging summer storm.

And no matter what direction I take
the path is always the same
I end up tossed in waves of confusion
swallowed up in an ocean of pain.

The dams I build around my heart,
you always seep your way through
I've got to find the shore
that separates me from you.

My heart craves a love like paradise,
we are constant war
Just like enemies in a battle
not worth fighting for.

I drank your poisoned water
like I was dying of thirst
Swallowing up your lies,
eyes blind, falling in head first.

I let you trap me on an island
surrounded by broken dreams
All this time I was overlooking the forest,
focusing on one tree.

I should've tossed you in the fire
the second you gave me thorns
Instead I let you turn me cold
when you should've kept me warm.
