180 Degrees

180 DEGREES

Take yourself back, erase, rewind.

All you relied on, you no longer find.

Do you know how it feels to lose all the faith you ever had?

But now you know each shade of blue.

 

Never before felt so vulnerable.

Opened wide, and I bared my soul.

Finally saw my dreams coming true, then the Universe played a joke on me.

Did it favor you?

 

Story is sad, but hey, sometimes

That's the way life goes, I keep making rhymes.

At least when my heart breaks the music stays.

So when it goes, I will know it must be my dying day.

 

Have you ever counted degrees of a circle, sliced it in half, and counted again?

The number you get is the very same difference 

between being a stranger and being a friend.

 

Will you show your face, or turn you back now?

Will you let disgrace direct your love?

It seems you changed the pace from all to nothing.

Now I don't recognize you.

I don't recognize you anymore.

Anymore, my love.

 

Take yourself back, erase, rewind.

All you relied on, you no longer find.

Do you know how it feels to lose all the faith you ever had?

But now you know each shade of blue.

 

Is there a place for me in this world?

Sitting in sorrow, feeling unfurled.

Wishing that you would just turn back around, place a kiss on my lips and say

I'll protect what we found.

I'll protect what we found.
