I'm seeing the world from where I stand,
Where I'll collapse moments from now,
Only to wish these satellites,
Were shooting stars.
Only to wish for one more thing
to bring the happiness back into my heart,

Quiet and motionless,
I mouth the words
I wish you were here
to see me say,

You make lying look easy,
Sometimes even amusing.
It's second nature for
someone of your stature,
Wonder if you were keeping score,
For every one you've pulled on me,
I pulled a good six,
right behind you.

You'll feel the blood drip from your back
Later on,
The pain will come around,
TO give you a good run for you money,
You'll miss me,
You'll realize..
you only hurt yourself.
