Castle Walls (Love's Not Fair)

Drew James© 2013

 

Here within these castle walls

Love tells all its secrets

Every need that comes to call

I seek a way to please it, I seek a way to please it

 

I offered her a chair

She answers with a stare

I ask, “Why don’t you care?”

Then she whispered, “Love’s not fair”

Lovs not fair, love's not fair

 

Here within these castle walls

Life unveils its freedom

There inside the entry hall

Stands its naked meaning

Stands it's naked meaning

 

Her deafness to my pleas

Drove me to my knees

She gave me back my keys


Then she turned her back to leave, turned her back to leave

Love's not fair

 

I used to swing

The whole world on a string

Now that string's a chain

That binds me like a slave

Love's not fair

 

Here within these castle walls

Night screams out in silence

Though I hear no sound at all

It splits my ears with violence, splits my ears with violence

 

I search but cannot find

Some clue she’s left behind

Some clear or subtle sign

To reassure me in my mind

That love is fair, love is fair

 

I used to swing

The whole world on a string

Now that string's a chain

That binds me like a slave

Love's not fair

 

Here within these castle walls

Love tells all its secrets

Every need that comes to call

I seek a way to please it, I seek a way to please it
