She kept me up,

he pulled me down,

she stayed afloat,

he stole the crown,

I wanted more,

I wanted less,

she begged for mercy,

he took off my dress,

she wouldn’t listen,

he wouldn’t care,

she was always glinting,

a cold, cold stare,

a child that wasn’t pure

who was born with the pain,

my baby sees,

my baby knows,

my baby fears my reign,

I can’t help but hurt,

I can’t help but love,

she tries to stop me,

I fall and run,

I take him with me,

that baby of mine,

fought for custody

when he'd crossed the line,

the punches he threw,

the cries I sprayed,

will forever be imprinted

in my sweet baby’s brain,

I can maybe make amends,

I can repay for my dues,

her skin like silk

that I couldn’t help but bruise,

I’m sorry, my dear,

I’ve realized it now,

that baby isn’t yours,

it’s ours,

and I vow;

I’ll never throw fists,

I’ll never force pain,

I’ll admit what I’ve done

and I’ll give up my reign

as the throne is shared

by a queen and a king,

a mom and a dad

that are sealed by a ring,

a baby in hand,

a groom and a bride;

Can we start this all over,

take our flight

and go glide?

She stared at me then,

but without all the cold,

I saw warmth and the love

in the words that I'd told,

He looked at me,

she rose me high,

he came up with me,

we went to the sky,

our hands interlocked

on this long windy ride,

an ocean, a flock,

together,

we glide.
