this dance

Round and round we go
One step here, one step there
Sideways, front, back, to and fro
This dance we’re in never seems to end.

One lie here, one lie there
Broken hearts scattered along the way
One truth here, one truth there
Crazy minds that never seem to mend.

I say yes, you say no
I say no, you say yes
Both of us not wanting to make things work
Both of us not willing to bend.

So this dance continues
In and out, up and down
Until one finally breaks
Until everything finally ends.
