I Followed
Slowly but faithfully I follow you
Only slightly aware of all the things you do yet shouldn’t do
Lied to left and right I try to keep my ship afloat
But drowning quickly in the end

I’m tired of all the ways you’ve slandered me
I’m tired of all the ways you’ve pushed me down
I’m tired of going home and crying to myself
Wondering what I did that was so wrong

Why was it that you were always letting me
Make all of those stupid mistakes
I guess you really didn’t care
I suppose you were never really there
To be the friend that I was to you

I’m tired of all the ways you’ve slandered me
I’m tired of all the ways you’ve pushed me down
I’m tired of going home and crying to myself
Wondering what I did that was so wrong

Blinded by your caring words and your mocking smile
You never really thought that I was worth your while
But now it doesn’t matter
It doesn’t matter in the end
‘Cause now I’ve realized
And I’ve reprioritized
And you’ve been placed at the bottom of my list

‘Cause I was tired of all the ways you’d slandered me
I was tired of all the ways you’d pushed me down
I was tired of going home and crying to myself
Wondering what I did that was so wrong
Now knowing nothing I did was so wrong

Slowly but faithfully I followed you
But now I’ve gone and
Left you behind

I wrote this as a song, not as a poem. You will probably be able to see that it is not a poem because it doesn't follow my usual style. I have a tune that this goes to, but I can't let you listen to it because its only in my head. If I were musically talented in the way of the piano I would try to play it, but I'm not, so I can not. Sorry.... Anyways, this is my song.

Well, if you hum well, perhaps someone who is musically talented could transcribe it? Say, in early August?
