When your heart turns sour and you can no longer trust, can you actually believe in love that lasts?
Well, if it’s a game, then you’d have to play it well. Let’s begin!
A Spoken Word to the Only Exception
composed by: Christian Foremost
Oh don’t kid yourself
You were just one of among the many
that was talking to that day
The game I already knew of so well
The more you catch, the more you may devour
A different set of faces day after day
No, I do not know your names
I do appreciate the right swipe and the few taps on your phone
It tells me I’m pretty and you wish to have me
Guess what? you absolutely can
And for as long as you’d like baby
“How are you doing?”
One word reply and you’re out
Say more and sound the horns,
A new game has just begun
All I ask is for your quick reply
“Who am I?”
Oh sure, I love talking about myself
“How about you?”
Nope I don’t really care.
I just need a reason to pass the time
You see, I’m bored out of my life
And we could all use some harmless fun right?
Let’s not stick to the basics
Who really cares about those?
I can tell you all the most random things
And you’ll laugh at my ever so witty commentary
Here we go again.
The rules are
No expectations, no strings attached
Let’s see where this leads
Before you decide our time is up
When I have you in my arms
I’ll write up our love story
How I’m this free spirit you see in the movies who’s definitely one of a kind
Oh you’ll fall in love with me
And i will say how lucky i am to have finally found you, sweet thing
It will be magic
Didn’t you already see the signs?
What were the odds of us meeting?
We’re fucking made for each other.
You see, you are not alone in the world
I am just like you, i can make you see that
Everything is the same in black and white
We lived the same life and i understand
I see you for who you are
And i hope you like what you see of me
Hours of talking and talking
Until I realize that I’m only left with you
Its amusing how entertaining it is get inside your head
I wonder how you are as the man in flesh
Will I still recognize you then?
I admit you are intriguing
I couldn’t get enough of knowing you
You belong up there on a pedestal where champions stand proud.
I’m no longer surprised by the words you say and the dreams you have
I just believe in how big of a person you are.
I love the gentle way you tell your stories
How I could feel you with me even when we’re miles part
We talk, talk and talk
Until I know everything about you
And you seem to know everything about me
Until there is just nothing left to talk about
“No, there is still the future to come”
Yes, we’ll have memories of our own
You want to see more of the world and of course I would tag along for the ride
I said yes yes yes to all of your invitations, promises, and dreams
Let’s just take off and leave our worlds behind
Just you and me, in a bubble en route to the stars
You paint quite a picture really
I almost almost had myself believing
Oh fool, I just won’t fall for that
But it felt really good to imagine
If I was somehow by your side then
It will be one hell of a happy ending
One could only dream asleep at night
Oh I can’t wait to meet you
To start up our tale of lust and adventure
“We’ll see each other for sure”
And then I can believe you
And then I can be sure
Oh I want to see you already, but when?
Every second of my life takes twice as long
Yours is going a hundred miles per hour
I hate waiting. Its ugly.
The paranoia, the anxiety, the desperation
Everything can change in a snap of a finger
Will you still be here after all that time?
What if you’re already talking to somebody else?
What if I’m making the same mistake?
I miss you.
How can I miss you when I haven’t even met you?
“How can I miss you when I’m talking to you right now?”
I’m pathetic and you love it
I would rather you just hurt me.
Hurt me as bad as you can.
I would have wanted you to do your worst
I could have rejoiced in the pain
That would have been better
Better than disappearing without a word
Like you never existed in the first place
Like I was delusional for thinking more of it
Feeling this numb,
knowing that I was right in the first place?
What consolation is that
when I could have had you?
when I could have had you
Being safe is not a victory
That’s not how you win the game
And I’m humiliated by it
You play the game like every other guy in the field
I’ve seen your moves before
I thought you were the only exception
But no, i was
because I understood the game
I been knocked down enough times
And every time I get back up, i only get stronger
And of course, I’ll get what i want
I always do, you’ll see
You still haven’t seen the last of me
Let another game begin.
