  We both put up our walls the night we met 

The more we flirted the more my heart yearned

 I made a decision to open up the gate 

To allow you into my kingdom

 * 

You might have believed I was a king 

The way I held myself up on a pedestal 

My truth is I was a fool merely performing for all to see

 Joy came to me from the laughter of others 

* 

Your tale was something much different from mine 

You stood atop your walls and professed your love to me 

Those words always felt empty to me 

I never saw your gate move 

* 

You asked to be treated like a queen on a pedestal 

Yet you carried yourself like a fool 

A mask of pain for all to see 

Hiding from the world your inner self

 * 

I stood at your gate and waited patiently 

Love and compassion were given freely 

Things I couldn’t even give myself at times 

But your heart was still full of pain 

* 

In the end the price became too steep 

My mind betrayed my heart

 Reality opened my eyes to the truth

 A simple step was all it took for me to walk away

 * 

Yet my feet refused to move 

There was a chain around me that had to be cut 

Calling upon my spirit guides to cut the chain 

A sword broke the chains in the blink of an eye

 Back to my kingdom I ran with a new mask to play the fool
