    Why do you make me so weak
    It's like
    I can't even speak
    and I have so much to say
    but I don't want to push you away
    You make me chase you
    and even when I try
    I can't seem to hate you
    I'm trying to love you
    but I can't make you
    promise to love me back
    or promise to act right
    and I keep thinking that if I flip
    that you just might
    walk away from me
    And then I think how dumb can I be
    because if I have to chase you
    then you must be running from me
    and sometimes, it's funny to me
    because like Aretha was
    I'm just a link in your chain
    the chain that causes me so much pain
    the same one that's got me locked in your game
    All I know
    is that I can't stop wanting you
    and needing you
    and I find myself continuously excusing you
    and all the dirt that you do
    because I'm in your chain
    your chain of fools
    and I choose to follow these rules
    and with you is where I'll be
    because as long as you're there
    I'm not going anywhere
    because this is what's good to me

    Half Crazy

    A walk in my past!
    I like the need that was felt by you when you wrote it...
    Why do we sometimes chase after the wrong thing...?? What a question...
    Wonderful expressions...(I was feeling this)
