See that high-heeled silhouette?
She's the queen of everything.
She's the one that stole your heart
And took you to L.A.
Yeah, she's the one that causes casualties.

I'm not perfect,
I can't stop this.
I can't wear those boots
And stomp on your break-up lines.
Can you hear me
Crying for you,
Locked in my bedroom
While she claims she loves you too?

See that smirking profile?
She's the queen of wanting more.
She's the one that takes the guys
And cheats on everyone.
Yeah, she's the one that causes falling tears.


See those cold, blue, icy eyes?
She's the queen of cutting ties.
She's the one that cared for you,
But only pretended.
Yeah, she's the one that causes betrayals.


I wish you were bright enough,
I wish you could see
The way she manipulates,
And tears your mind
Out of its place.

Now that she's made her mark,
I couldn't take you back.
Not even if you tried.

This didn't start off as a song, but as I had a little acoustic melody playing in my head as I wrote, so I created verses, a chorus, and a bridge. Enjoy!

Great song, as DaylightDarkness said I could see it as both a song and a poem. The message was good and sadly relatable to many.

Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend

This is really good, and I can see it as both a poem and a song, which, in my opinion, are the best songs anyway. ^^. I didn't hear the acoustic, but i hear someone singing it, so wow! Great job.
