In desperation,

I begin to play with your feelings.

In desperation,

I begin to play with your emotion.

It's so easy,

Maybe you should perfect that guard.

At times I look at you,

And I'm sick.

You try so hard to keep people out,

But when it comes to me,

I can't stay out.

Maybe you just love the game,

But I'm getting tired.

Go find someone else,

Please,

Who doesn't mind the playing game,

And the constant irony,

You just love so much.

I'm not giving up,

I just think you need your space.
