The Proof Is Within The Truth From Unconditional Love

Hello my love
The forecast is rather cloudy
Upon the greedy lies of your heart
As it rains with muddy disillusion
Flooding all of common sense
Drowning hope for it once was
Making it all deterrent

So please reveal the catch my love
One has to be there right?
It always has to be that way
Just another trying to drive me into submission
Not realizing I was onto you and the others
All from the very start

Yes, you are not the first
Nor will you probably be the last
No matter where
Deceit tries finding me everywhere

Ah, and then I see those who are taken
Those who find deceit
And guess what?
They know it
They just for some reason
Relish in being defeated

But you see
They want a dramatic twist
They want to be spun around
So there hearts can be washed
And dried out
So they can wear denial
Upon its own perplexing confusion

Wanting or taken
It all seems that same to me
In this very perspective
Rotting to the core of its own tragic folklore

But my love
Back to you
Were you one who was once fooled?
Did your heart become unglued?
So now you have to take it out all on me

Sorry, take it on yourself
I would rather be alone
Then get sucked into
All of your own misery

I swear sometimes
My heart feels like a ticking time bomb
Put there by all the lies of the past
But still the wires can be worked on
To make it all calm again

I can trust
But my trust is getting rather thin

Prove my lack of faith wrong my love
And then we shall talk again
