AN UNLIVING LOVE

I THOUGHT YOU WAS MY LOVE,
THE ONE SENT TO ME FROM ABOVE.
NOW, I WONDER WHAT THAT LOVE,
YOU HAD FOR ME WAS MADE OF.

THE ONE WHO WOULD TALK TO ME,
WHOSE LOVE WAS SO EASY TO SEE?
WHO WOULD HOLD ME TIGHT,
OR HOLD ME ALL NIGHT?

NOW, AS I PRAY TO GOD ABOVE,
I KNOW NOW IT WAS AN UNLIVING LOVE.
LIKE WHEN YOU PUT ONE UPSIDE MY FACE,
AND ALWAYS TRY TO PUT ME IN MY PLACE

MY SMILE YOU NEVER WANTED TO SEE,
FOR THEN YOUR CONTROL YOU THINK COULDN'T BE
A FIST YOU SENT FLYING TO MY CHEST,
THINKING THAT YOU KNOW FOR ME WHAT IS BEST.

YES, YOUR LOVE NO LONGER HAS A LIFE,
FOR NOW I AM YOUR SLAVE, NOT, YOUR WIFE,
OR NOT YOUR HUSBAND, JUST A CHAINED MAN,
WHO, YOU WANT TO BE PUTTY IN YOUR HAND.

SO, WHERE DID IT ALL GO, WILL IT I EVER COME TO KNOW?
ALL THE WORDS OF LOVE THAT YOU HAD SAID,
BUT: NOT ONE, ABOUT A LOVE THAT WOULD SOON BE DEAD.
