What Makes Love Go Round?


Somebody asked me what makes the world go round,

Thought about it then I had to sit down

Cause I don't know

Never understood how love can burn your soul

Or turn you into somebody you didn't know

It's all just a roll

A six die dice that will make you think twice

Make you question everything you had when you lived a good life

Chest burning so you sooth it with some ice

Now all these things that you thought of you drink down all night

Tis' horrible sight

A tough pill to swallow

People give you they best wishes and expect tomorrow

But why be

Because everyone and no one has which in turn can mean

That your perception isn't your perception

Or it isn't what it seems

It beats me

I used to have a romanticist view

Thought of looking at a beautiful model laid up in her room

But little things make your vision change

N Whether she was really mine or not would've fooled me too

I think about her at nights on those satin white sheets

Rose pedals make way to the bed as she kisses up on me the way she used to


 Now I can't think that way

Because my window cracked from a rock that I seemed to thought my ex threw my way

Maybe not

 Might've been my grandma's vision

When she told me be somebody she missing

Somebody she missing

But what do I do when that other person comes back

She forgets me and now she what I'm missing

People use people like that

Just like what goes around skips a town or something like that

So stop asking me what makes the world go round

I want to answer but this is like my math class I put my head down

Don't ask me what's wrong cause you've been round

Excuse me if I cry but I can see now that you haven't been down
