Listening to Miley Cyrus' new song "Wreckingball" hit really close to home with everything that has been going on lately. My own personal version, I suppose.

We jumped in fast, once upon a time.

We set off in a whirlwind, falling in love, searching for better than we had.

We got so close, I gave you all of me.

You have the power to break me to a million pieces.

Will you use it?

I have made mistakes,

I've lied to save face.

I've gone behind your back

Only to look behind my own.

What do we have if I can't trust you

And you don't trust me?

Was I supposed to follow you blindly, knowing you were lying?

Was I supposed to sit by and let everything we've built come tumbling down?

Was I supposed to keep it all in?

I have learned fight or flight.

I have learned to bring things to the light.

I chose to fight for us, baby--

Even if that meant fighting you.

And I've made mistakes,

I lied to save face.

I've gone behind your back

Only to look behind my own.

What do we have if I can't trust you

And you don't trust me?

We planned a future together

You say we will get married.... some day.

I still love you more than I love myself.

You still have my whole heart.

You have the power to break me into a million pieces,

And I know the answer to my question now.

You've set me ablaze and walked away,

Watched me cry, watched the pain spill out from deep within

And still you held up your walls and let me suffer alone.

All I ever wanted was for you to let me in,

Let me be your only one,

Don't make me fight for us...

All I ever wanted.....

But now we are at eachother's throats all the time

Cuz I am trying to force this to work.

But love can't be forced.

Your secrets mean more to you than loving me.

Don't ever say I just walked away.

Don't ever say I just gave up.

I am going down swinging

Blood, sweat and tears for you....

I have closed my eyes now,

I have taken my hands off now.

I will let you lead us down the path you choose,

But let me introduce you to Apathy and Brokenness

They are the walls that have moved into place in my life.

When I try to confront and compromise

You point your finger at me.

Darling, remember now,

There are always three pointing back at you.

Because I've made mistakes,

I lied to save face.

I've gone behind your back

Only to look behind my own.

What do we have if I can't trust you

And you don't trust me?
