An Ode

No one will ever love you like I did,
but you threw it all away for the thrill of the game,
others in relationships got kisses, all i got were scars,
I didn't fall in love with you, I realize now I sold my soul to the devil,
no one has ever hurt me like you, and now no one will ever again,
everytime i tried to leave, you always made me somehow, stay,
other girls got flowers from her man, you just told me lies,
where were you when i cried out your name,
where were you when i needed my man to be there,
it could have been a simple, sweet love,
but you made it into a neverending battle,
a battle between staying and leaving,
a battle between killing myself or tearing myself away,
a star has your name in the sky, but you gave me the best gift of all,
a life lesson everyone must learn, don't let go,
to the devil, i cast my soul, for your love, but your love,
was not what i thought, so i was left lost in your world,
i gave you the rest of my light, leaving me in darkness,
your hand nowhere to guide me.
An unknown power came down to save me from you,
an unknown force bubbled inside me,
you left me blinded and twisted and scared and doubtful and bitter and hateful with no passion left for anything in this world,
but i regained my bright along with my dignity and passion,
i still have those scars you left,
i will never be the person i was before you,
i'm still damaged but i turned that damage into something beautiful,
but now you wanna change and call out MY name and search for MY hand because now YOU are searching blind and doubtful in the darkness,
my light no longer being there to show your path,
don't you know everything we do in this universe comes back to us in two, well now you do, so boo hoo, to you.

Slide Lyrics - The Dresden Dolls

a late april day and it's sunny outside
and a red little girl's at the top of a slide
and an an orange old man at the bottom
wants to take her for a ride
as she slips and she tumbles the orange man mumbles
pennies crash down from the sky
and he tells her he'll take her away where it's safe
and of course it is a lie
she's a third the down and her skirts are yanked up
and her little girl cheeks start to wrinkle
but her smile is wide and her legs are spread wider
her hair growing long and her hips getting larger
past getting brighter
light growing weaker....
she is halfway down now but the man is impatient
shakes change in his pocket he might have to wait but she's coming...
she's coming...

who are you blaming?
they're just playing!
that's a good one...
who left the playground
a good decade before the bell rang?

as she starts to draw nearer the view becomes clearer
the splinters are painful but she doesn't feel it
the pennies were loaded and as they exploded
she starts to spin out of control...
her eyes are now closing her sleeves are unrolling
up past her head and her veins are all showing
not that she noticed she's thoroughly focused on
one old man who's laughing...
who's laughing....
dont' worry
i've got you
don't worry
i've got you

the orangeman got you.....
