It was a promise You pinned your hopes on It was a future You knew you owned. But it doesn’t happen Like it’s supposed to It came crashing down Like a brick on you. So for self-respect You refuse to just take it And for self-preservation You choose to quit.
You aimed for it A thousand times And always bloody miss. You tell your hopeful self It’s fine, it’s fine Tomorrow’s another shot at it. Whoever thought it easy Could only be delusional. This diet goal is crazy, A dream that fades away – The kind of new beginning That just restarts each day.
It appeared like a star In a very dark night. It promised like a god That you will be all right. It lured you like a temptress To a place you’ve never been. It stirred you to a restlessness Such as one you’ve never seen. It warmed you up to a vision Where you live your heart’s desires. It then left you disillusioned When it vanished as you caught fire.
You used to be An integral part of me – You filled my veins With fire, You fanned my heart’s Desire, You took me up So high – You ruled me. And then – gone. I lost you along the way Or maybe you left, I stayed. Regardless how it Came to be I searched for you Each day And when I’m close You just Slip away.
