You hide behind a rider, riding in the night
You dream of wolves a flying but they are in your soul tonight
You dream of being a cowboy, you dream that you are the king
But I know that in your heart, there is a girl who softly sings
Why, oh why did you leave me?
Why, oh why indeed?
You left me for a dream and then you ignored me
Why did you leave me? When we were really strong?
Why did you turn away, what did I do wrong?
I say, it wasn’t you it was completely me
I wanted to let you go, so that you could be free
I couldn’t let you see the path that I have now took
Because if you saw the truth, your soul will be shook
You are delicate and fragile; this road is not for you
You have no idea of the dangers if I spoke to you
So please keep away from me, don’t hide behind a mask
I know it is hard for you, but please do this task
For I ride with devils, that will tear your soul apart
Please do not save me, for it will break your heart
Now my song is over, I hope you’ve heard me well
Just keep away from my life because you’ll fall as well
I don’t need a saving, because I am in the right place
I know it’s dark and hellish and full of disgrace
But I need you to stay right where you are
Because you’re far prettier without a scar
So listen to my song
Listen hard and know
That you shouldn’t be around me, so now please go
This was written as a country western song, but it was also written for a friend. Unfortunately we had to part ways because we weren’t good for each others mental health – but some people cling to hope, when there is none. Sorry.
