current

I fell so deep in, I knew I’d drown.
I even laughed at the joke you made out of me.

Let me break it down:
You made me someone I didn’t want to be,
but I masked it all with a smile when deep down
I knew you could still see there was still a frown.
I knew, if i fell again, you’d let me down, but before long

I was caught in your current,
couldn’t swim so I let myself drown.
I let everybody down, so I burned down all I built in this town.
I got so far just to let myself down,
told myself I’d never let you come back around,
but I did and this time was a beat down.
You stole my crown, let me drown, 
and watched the current take me down.

You can’t keep secrets in a small town,
so I go home and breakdown
because I know I can never come back down,
I’ve climbed too high. 
They’re counting down the days until I come back around
just so they can sit around acting mad 
like they’re about to shoot-down.
This isn’t an elementary playground,
imagination isn’t what I write down.
Before long, they’d know I shut down,
I always frown, I stress out,
stare at the ground, when you’re not around.

I was caught in your current,
couldn’t swim so I let myself drown.
I let my everybody down,
burned down everything I built in this town.
I got so far, just to let myself down,
told myself I’d never let you come back around,
but I did and this time was a harder beat down.
The current took me down,
you stole my crown and let me drown.

I was in too deep into this cascade of let down.
I was in too deep into a blockade of takedown, waiting for showdown.
I figured you strayed or shutdown,
I guess you were the new blade.
Just another to my list of let-me-downs,
but it’s ok, someone will come around.

I was caught in your current,
couldn’t swim so I let myself drown.
I let my everybody down,
burned down everything I built in this town.
I got so far, just to let myself down,
told myself I'd never let you come back around,
but I did and this time was a harder beat down.
The current took me down,
you stole my crown and let me drown.
