Spin me a web of lies and deceit
Line my nest of thorns
My naiveté weaves a blanket of love
Threads of beauty and truth adorn
Blur life’s sharp edges
Make the blind eye turn
Come to me with no promise
And I’ll make you none in return
Come fall with me… in love, no, lust
Let me peel away every layer
A mover and shaker, a faker, a taker
Not another smooth talking player?
There’s another hiding behind the mask
Vulnerability is there, I see
Open you heart… open your mind
If you can… I’ll share all that is me
Let’s journey on the road less travelled
We’ll stumble some, on our way
Be my sun, I’ll be your stars
Let fate guide us… what do you say?
