I often try and look back
To see how we ended up here
On such opposite sides
When at the end of the day
We both had the same goal.
I guess you have always been that thorn in my side
Just like I your kryptonite
But tell me this much,
Was the twist still in the knot
When the whole thing came loose?
You had me decieved
The whole time thinking I was playing checkers
When we were really playing chess
I tried playing by your rules
I really did
But when push came to shove
Well let's just say you always knew what button to press
To make me feel like the mad hatter
Lost in wonderland
Late to the party
You're a self-admitted control freak
I was a self-acknowledged push over
I was just a little girl thinking she knew it all
Well you were just an old bully,
Only difference is I'm not so young and naive
And you lost your intimidation.
Sadly it was just a little to late
So I ask you again
How did we get here?
And more importantly
How do we make it stop?
