How could you know

I would continue to grow

Into someone you no longer recognize

I’m sorry, my love.

My life force is strong

I can’t helpΒ 

What pulls me along

this winding path

I wish I could be

a simpler sort of girl

Someone who deserves

a quiet life.

But, I want it all

and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna get it

I may be getting it now

Who knows what’s to come

Your safety can’t save me

From myself

And I was a fool to believe

it could.

Oh, darling if only

I wasn’t so bad

If only

I could be good.
