You picked me up, to feel like I never had before, and then you let me fall.

On wings you let me fly

Floating on your affection

Little currents of warmth

Blown from sweet lips

Keeping me aloft.

 

I basked in it, savored it.

And loved you for it.

I finally made the commitment

And leapt to your arms,

You caught me before I could fall

Gave me little wings to soar

 

I was perfect there,

You were perfect there.

But perfect cant ever be right

And when I looked down

I was falling.

 

And you watched, tears

Streaming down,

Cause you let me fall.
