Falling Free

People always talk

About falling in love

But what about the other side

What about falling out of love

Do you get too comfortable

Too expectant of each other

Take each other for granted

No longer overlooking

Those annoying little flaws

Bitterness sneaking in

On the edge of hating

And anger under the surface

Resenting the lost years

Then the hitting of rock bottom

When the damage is done

And goodbyes are all that is left

Climbing Up From Rock Bottom

Digimax A50 / KENOX Q2

Step by step I climb the stairs on the hill

Closer and closer to memories of you

So many emotions of times we shared

Among these trees

The leaves all watching

Two people who thought they were in love

Two people who were wrapped up in each other

Two people who burned out too fast

And left behind in the flames of passion

Stood me broken hearted

Alone and still in love
