I wrote this because many people chase things, chase relationships that weren't meant to be and lose themselves in it. They lose their direction as they try and build themselves back up again after they realise that it won't work, but knowing woman's luck, they realise when it's too late.
Many times people go back to relationships, that they know may end the way it ended before. Sometimes it works out for the better, but for the unlucky ones, it doesn't do that too much.
Personally; I think I know the reason I'm single.

I trust nobody...

So we chase butterflies,

That won’t ever land,

As we grasp thin air,

With unachievable hands,

Then we skid to a halt,

And don’t know where to stand.

If we can’t save ourselves,

What can?

 

And then we walk,

A distance apart,

I don’t like it either,

I swear, cross my heart,

 

And I’ve no mood to chase butterflies,

I’ve no mood to lose,

And I’ve no mood for emptiness,

Or to think of a path to chose,

 

So please choose it for me,

Tell me which way to go,

Because for once I’m lost,

And I wish for you to know.
