Slowly, without warning You had dug a hole underneath me And I was too busy, too preoccupied, trying to love you To notice how low I had really gotten
Looking up, seeing the distance to where I once stood I reached up to you, thinking you would pull me out But you just walked away. Leaving me stranded All alone
And it took me quite some time To crawl my way up And you watched as I struggled As I used every ounce of what you left of me To try and scratch my way back to the light Never thinking I would muster the strength To finally reach the top
As I was inches away My struggle almost over Then you came back Making sure to push me back down To where you had left me.
My fight is not over, I will reach where I once stood.
