After three strikes you're out


Right when I could win this bout


Something off catches my eye


Hands around another guy


You were the third and final one


Hair the color of a new sun


Eyes of a heaven;y shade


Oh how from logic they'd make me fade


Of course we weren't exactly a pair


But you and I would see each other everywhere


At last it seemed to be


From this shadow I'd finally be free


So there that night I went to the play


And of course a pair comes across my way


You dared not even meet my eyes


Your shame buried and in disguise


I could see it happen not even in a dream


This was my dying day's final sun beam


Where the sun gives in to the night of no stars


Just me, myself, and I in an empty car


Staring down the blackened road


Back to our humble abode


From that theatre I'm glad I left


My last piece of faith cleft


There wasn't just actors on that stage


So here I go turn the page


Wracked by neither anger or grief


It seems you were the perfect thief


I only have pity for this guy


Before you steal his moon,sun,and sky


For in this areana there should only be one contender


Instead you play us for the prize of a pretender
