MY PERFECT WORLD
On a roll of the dice you left that night
Landing on snake eyes, the throw wasn’t right
You said to me, “Boy, I don’t need you.”
Then all of that love was broken in two
Getting beyond you has always been hard
I’m a Joker chasing the Queen of Hearts card
I’m just a boy but you’re more than a girl
Standing on top of my perfect world.
I thought about leaving but I couldn’t move
You’re a shot through the soul with nothing to lose
You bricked up the walls to my Shangri-La
And blocked out the sun from the Eye of Ra
All truth was revealed upon your arrival
You gave my heart to Anubis to control my revival
And all weaknesses of mine you would find
In my perfect world that you left behind.
Nothing is perfect when time stands still
There is no warmth in a long winter’s chill
Raindrops are gathering on my window sill
Your hands unleash the passions that thrill
Showing me the voids that I need to fill
Until I’m a volcano ready to spill
Your words are the bullets with the power to kill
My perfect world where you shatter my will.
I knew that you always liked to play games
In a castle of cards where royalty reigns
Where you are the bridge as well as the moat
With your skeletal fingers tight on my throat
I can’t resist you or I’ll be devoured
No man can stand up to such Feminine Power
You dealt me bad cards and my deck was hurled
Right out the window of my perfect world.
