You stepped into my life and took my hand.
I didn’t have a choice, I didn’t understand
A dance unknown, but you knew my soul
Each step we took, the more you stole
You kept me from my friends and the ones that I love
You kept me for yourself holding me tight with your glove
I tried to struggle and break free from your embrace
The more that I pulled away, the harder you would hold my face
Crushing me into your chest I lost my breath
At times, I honestly would wish for death
Catching glimpses in mirrors as we glided past
I no longer recognized myself, you kept me moving so fast
You would lift me and flip me, keeping me forever off balance
There was no stopping, no pausing, no breaking free from this wicked dance.
Shouting and screaming I would beat my hands against your chest
But no sound would come out, you would shake your head, and keep dancing no less
Demon, I know you, let me free of your grip.
My soul you no longer can feed on, no, not even a sip.
Anxiety, you whispered cruel lies in my ear
You told me I was unloved, as you drew me near
You serpent, you slithered right into my chest.
Telling me I had no worth , I could never be the best
I am through with you, you can tempt me no more
Even as I lay broken, crying on the floor
