The Cheating Cheat


So I loved you, and so I hate you.
My ups and downs, my highs and lows,
I wanted it all, or nothing at all.

You reeled me in, then pushed me down.
You held my hand and helped me drown.
Your actions, the routines of a clown.

So I loved you, and so I hate you.
My ups and downs, my highs and lows,
I wanted it all, or nothing at all.

Accepted the venture, let my heart be astounded.
Not foreseeing, I would be confounded.
The tricking and scheming sure got me dumbfounded.

So I loved you, and so I hate you.
My ups and downs, my highs and lows,
I wanted it all, or nothing at all.

My wits and judgment, rather fogged.
My anger arising, swelling into a flood.
The wish to participate, now dissolved.

So I loved you, and so I hate you.
My ups and downs, my highs and lows,
I wanted it all, or nothing at all.

For the lords who lay ye low?

The rich robes your tyrants wear?
