A Better Way To Spend Mine By: Carl Johnson II (Carl The Muse)

19 Feb


You have been such a hard thing for me to do

For me being with you has been as hard as you telling the truth

Its not like I don’t have a clue

And I am no fool

I know just what to expect from you

And still I let you use me like a tool

Used and then thrown away

Never to be spoken of again

Like a huge mistake

I was the only real partner here

The relationship was fake

Its no wonder its always about to break

I was living in a reality that I hoped was just a nightmare

But when I went to sleep and then woke up you were still right there

It has been like this for years

And I am stupid enough to still be here

Because I have become numb and I have no fear

The well has run dry I won’t shed a tear

I have been knocked down by you too many times

To do it again I would be out of my mind

Your secrets have been uncovered

There is nothing left to find

And on that note I have run out of rhymes

Thinking about you messes up my shine

But the truth is I can’t get you off my mind

I play it all back in rewind

And just when I think its dead

There is a jump in that flat line

And the fire rages as I get lost in time

I lose my sense of direction and I am lost in my mind

I can see it again and again

Its like the end becomes the beginning

It think its done it plays again

I am stuck in a cycle that I can’t win

I am the fool trying to run against the wind

Do I keep fighting this battle or do I just give in

Or is the result of it all something I will not see until the end

I can’t commit that sin

I can’t lose track of my time or my mind again

I need to be fully aware and I need to stand tall and be right there

Lost in the moment that is in front of my face

Blinded by nothing and led by faith

You have no need to question you already know the answers

And you already know the way

No more darkness at night

No more wasting the blessing of a new day

    Relationships are difficult that way sometimes…. and I’ve always said, “As long as you keep on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten.”…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We cannot change other people, but we can change how we allow them to treat us…
