How Did This Happen

Written by Amber Rubarth © 2011

How did this happen again
When did the room start to spin
Out of focus and crash in the breezes
I thought we’d figured it out
Thought our hearts finally found
One love that trumped every reason

But bricks came piling up
And they blocked out the sun
Stopped our arms from holding each other
The walls we built to protect
Locked us in here instead
In the darkness, lonely and hungered
Both back to a life all alone

I want to get out
I want to get out
So I gotta give in
I gotta give in, now
I gotta give in
I want to get out
I want to get out
So I gotta give in
I gotta give in, now
I gotta give in

How did this happen again
Why did I fight to the end
In a battle I didn’t believe in
I thought we’d figured it out
Thought our hearts finally found
One Love that trumped every reason
One Love that trumped every reason
One Love that trumped every reason to go
Back to a life all alone
