Endless Love & Constant Friction
We've just been going thru the motions.
We knew marriage would, at times, be hard.
But I here I am, treading in oceans
Of salty tears from my lonely heart.
Express myself? Forget it!
It's pointless as can be.
It only leaves me broken,
Stuck pretending I'm not me.
Pretending that I'm fine.
Pretending not to see
The salty stretch of ocean
Separating you from me.
"For better or for worse" is what our vows did say,
But I cant tell the difference
When you easily check out for the day.
We only speak to each other in front of them.
We put on a show,
Like everything's fine.
But we know that it's not,
We're way unaligned.
The "blame game" gets old.
And marriage is not a competition.
Yet, we're trapped in this loop,
Of endless love and constant friction.
It wasn't always like this,
We used to be a team.
But somewhere, along the journey,
We started unraveling at the seam.
I get it. You work hard.
You do your best to provide.
But look at me! Don't you see?!
I'm supporting you on all sides.
I'm not giving up on us.
And I hope you'll say the same.
But we've got to find a better way
Besides these silly, stupid games.
These stupid games that break us,
That leave us both undone.
We should know, for fact, by now,
We're better together, two as one.
