Suffocate

Followed your heart, followed your feet

Took all the advices you gave me

Pulled me apart, tore me to seams 

Waned a silver lining to frame me

 

Now I don't need to see you smiling

I don't need your hope

I don't need to keep you admiring 

Because I'm not playing this skipping rope 

 

Took all the blames and sewed up my thoughts 

Limped, is what you waned me to see? 

Built up the walls, threw me in 

Suffocate, is what you taught me to be keen in

 

I know you're a doll and you want me to be more

But I can't sell myself and end up like a whore

So take all your closeness, you lost your shot

Now you're nothing more than a blindspot
