Game of Chess

I walk through the hall

See your smile and I fall

You pretend you don't know

I try to not let the pain show

But at your simple "hey"

My control fades away

How could you think it was fine?

How could you let me think you were mine?

I'm tired of these lies

Just hurry up and break these ties

Our love was a game of chess

My heart was checkmated in this mess

You smiled and kissed me

Pretended you didn't see

You didn't see my anger, my pain

But my tears fell like rain

How could you think I was okay?

When your lips touched hers that day

In the beginning we fell

Twining together into one shell

We spent our days in bliss

Every night was sealed with a kiss

We were on top

But then I fell before I could stop

How could you think it was fine?

How could you let me think you were mine?

I'm tired of these lies

Just hurry up and break these ties

Our love was a game of chess

My heart was checkmated in this mess

It was in those halls I received the note

I opened it up and fell from the boat.

I'm barely treading water here.

Please don't come near

Broken hearts and unleashed tears

These are my fears

Slowly I begin to drown

In this water I sink down

I turn my back and walk away

I won't hear your lies today

You made a mistake losing me

There never will be another "we"
