Stealing Back My Soul


When I said

Those three words

I love you

I felt the swords

Cut out my heart

Pulled my soul

Straight from my chest

Tried to fill the hole

With these gifts of mine

Mind, heart, and soul

I laid at your feet

Never knowing the toll

I rested my bloody body

In your arms

I kept saying

“There’s no harms”

You sure showed me

Proved I could be wrong

So I sit here bleeding

As I sing this song


“I love you, I love you

What did I ever do so wrong?

I love you, I love you

How can I be more than strong?

I love you, I hate you

This has gone on way too long

I love you, I hate you

You’re the one who’s not strong

I hate you, I hate you

You pushed me around too long

I hate you, I hate you

This is way too wrong

For way too long”


Now you hate me

Because I could take no more

All I have to say is,

“Just what the fuck for?”

Leave me alone

Get out of my mind

On my heart, you’ve already dinned

This one was written to Paul. At the time I really did feel like he was after my soul. Looking back, I realize that he never really was.
