Shut Out

In the beginning, we were strong
Now I feel something is wrong
We used to stay up all night
But now everyday seems like a fight

We were partners in crime
These days there's never any time
I have to fight you to get a smile
And when I win, it only lasts a small while

You are distant, and your mind is always elsewhere
And no matter what I try, your thoughts you never share
You just sit there behind those walls
While I'm counting every brick that falls

But no matter how many fall
Your wall will always be too tall
I can never stand tall enough to see
All I can do, is leave you be

I want so desperately to go back
To see just how far we have gone off track
And maybe see why you're shutting me out
Keeping me in a constant state of anxiety and doubt

I love you, but I'm not sure you feel the same
We are stuck in a constant game
I ask, you turn me away with a lie
But I don't have the heart to call your bluff, so I accept the lie

Back and forth we go
And the pendulum swings so low
It's only a matter of time before it cuts the thread
And the love that was so alive, lay dead
