My Integrity

My Integrity

Your lies seemed simply surreal
At least, they did to me
And they proved to be simply unreal
In the scheme of things

In the middle of a moonlit hour
When I try to snag some sleep
Your words kept me tossin’ around
And they seem to diminish me

You can’t love me and then lie to me
You can’t take my integrity
No, I won’t let you
Take that away from me

I loved you, but you didn’t love me
Or, that’s the way that it seemed
Later on, I figured out I was wrong
But, that was way down the stream.
In the middle of my daily horoscope
It became clear to me
The magnitude of your deception was
An education for me

You can’t love me and then lie to me
You can’t take my integrity
No, I won’t let you
Take that away from me.

It’s been over for a number of years
At least, it has been for me
But you keep calling up my cell phone
And, I can’t get no release

But the world has revolved many times
And much water has flowed down the stream
Even though my feelings still flow
I’m not going to live your dream

You can’t love me and then lie to me
You can’t take my integrity
No, I won’t let you
Take that away from me.
Cause if I do, I know I will never be free!

(Your Love Was) Dangerous
by Tom Mikotowicz

I didn’t realize your love was so dangerous.
When you left, you took a large part of the two of us.
I didn’t know that you’d leave so soon, and I’d be left on the moon!
Living out a life that was dangerous!

When I first met you, you said your love was dangerous
That didn’t bother me or get between the two of us.
It didn’t occur to me, I was too blind to see
That loving you would be so dangerous

Then late at night I saw you standing at the foot of my bed.
At first, I didn’t know who it was, or hear anything that you said.
You walked across the room from me, I didn’t know if I was dreaming or dead
But I called to you and I called to you,
I didn’t want to fall for you,
Didn’t really want to fall for you,
But I did!

Again, late at night I saw you standing at the foot of my bed.
I was confused and very surprised and there were demons in my head.
But I needed your love and you were willing, yes you were oh so willing, you said.
You came to me, like a flame to me
You came to me like a flame to me
You came to me like a flame to me
And that was dangerous!

I didn’t realize your love was so dangerous.
When you left, you took a large part of the two of us.
I didn’t know that you’d leave so soon, and I’d be left on the moon!
Living out a life that was dangerous! (and destructive)

Then late at night you appeared to me standing at the foot of my bed
I was confused and very surprised, but I knew that you were dead.
But I needed your love and you were reaching for me, but I couldn’t be led.
I called for you and I called for you, but I didn’t want to follow you
I didn’t really want to follow you
‘cause that’d be dangerous.
I think your love for me was very dangerous!
