Lyrics

That Old Cycle

Written By: Jessica Parkes

(I have no idea how i am supposed to organize this, so i hope this will suffice, it is the first song i have ever written and I'm pretty clueless about all this... The verse chords are so simple, just Em, then G, back and forth for each line...)

Em
I hear you calling my name
G
But these days it just don't sound the same
Em
Don't know why you're tryin' again
G
Both know we can't neither one win
Em
Yes i love you and you love me, but
G
things don't work out that simple, see
Em
What goes up must come down
G
And that old cycle just spins round and round

Chorus

D
You make me smile, you make me sad
C
I make you laugh and i make you mad
D
You pick me up and you put me down
C
I ease your worries and make your head pound
G
C
G (while strumming before each new verse there is a mm-mm and mm-hmm, like no, yes, no thoughts...)

(same chords, Em, G)
I walk in and you walk away
You call me up but i say not today
Get me riled, try to start a fight
Just to see how it ends tonight
Don't talk of future, we are the past
We both knew it wasn't really gonna last
Thanks for the lovin, thanks for the fun
Thank god we didn't neither own a gun

Chorus

(Em, G)
I'll sing along while you play your guitar
We both know its gonna go to far
We can pretend for just one night
But know the truth by the morning light
My heart can only break so many times
Before i finally gotta draw that line
You stay on your side, i'll stay on mine
And we will have one more goodbye

Chorus

(Em,G)
We've stayed up, plenty of nights
Makin love or havin us a fight
I guess that's just the way it goes
Where it ends, nobody knows
Cause i love you and you love me
But things don't work that simple, see
What goes up must come down
And that old cycle will spin round and round
and round
and round
and round
and round
