I’m a puppet
A doll
Reciting the lines
Dangling from strings
Making the moves
Any move
All the moves
To get to you
I do anything
Climb any mountain
Steal every star
Run any mile
To get to you
But I never get there
Though I sit through every session
Of watching her fight for you
I notice every glance
She throws at you
But no matter how hard I try
Knives slice through the strings holding me up
Fists tear through the papers I recite from
And you see right through me
Every obstacle I’ve gone through to get you
Every smile I’ve faked to trick you
Everything I’ve done to catch you
Is destroyed
By me
I don’t need to say my name
Because you already know who I am
You just don’t like what you see
