Slowly, I follow, easily replaced
Constantly faced, with enemies
Slowly, I stumble, can’t keep the pace
Fall on my face, get dirt kicked in my eyes

Slowly, I crawl, stopping at your feet
Sympathy’s so sweet, but your tongue is sour
Slowly, you tear away all of my pride
There’s nowhere to hide, my inside is outside and

Why do I fall back into these bear traps?
Why do I fall for it over and over again?
Why do I make the same stupid mistakes
I’ve been making since I first learned your name?

Hastily done, scribble scratch signatures
Contracts just to make sure I don’t run away
Wasting and waiting, in my mind debating
Is this really hating, or has our love just gone astray?

Or was there really love to begin with
Or was it just infatuation with
Your hair and your smile, they put me in denial
I think you’re looking longingly into my eyes
But are you just looking at your own reflection
I think it’s about time that I said goodbye
Your body, your skin, oh, how it draws me in
And your intelligence, oh, where do I begin?
But this mask that you wear, it hides the skin that’s bare
Underneath, and the fact that you just don’t care

Why do I fall back into these bear traps?
Why do I fall for it over and over again?
Why do I make the same stupid mistakes
I’ve been making since I first learned your name?

Nothing’s been the same, since I have joined this game
We’ve been playing since I first learned your name
