You took what I gave and you hurled it
Far in the deepest sea.
You didn’t care as you did so,
What would happen to me.
You took a dream and you smashed it,
Never stopping to think
That a soul thirsting for water
Came there often to drink.
You turned my Spring to Autumn
And snatched the sun from the sky.
You took all I had to offer
And left, never telling me why.
You wanted freedom from sorrow.
You wanted freedom from care
Even if you stepped on people
In order to get there.
You said you were tired of fighting,
Tired of doing a thing
To stop the hurt you were causing,
To lessen the bearable sting.
Run from the life you have broken.
Run from the truth of yourself.
Lie like a stone in the river
And squander your hidden wealth.
Never dream of tomorrow.
Be useless during today.
Yet, never blame it on others
That nothing had come your way.
