Above Under

Verse 1: We held hands and I fell under your spell...you are the hell from above My heart has turned to ashes, but I rose again like a Phoenix because of you and I's love I bled out regret because I disappointed you...I fed the fire of desireless shame I was once the shade of red, but now I'm the hue of blue...life is one long monopoly game Pre-chorus: You whispered lullabies in my keen ears When I was drowning in my tears, You lifted me up above the ground where I knelt down, gravity-bound and doing nothing much My prayer was answered the moment you found me and kissed me - oh how I missed your touch Chorus: I'm here to stay...above under night after night and day after day To my dismay, the clouds are dreary and gray as can be today You're here to prey... Upon my helpless soul, Sensitive to your eyes, burning like black coal Yeah, you're a predator that hunts me down I'll keep smiling the pain away and wearing my upside down frown crown Ooooh ooooh mmmm Ooooh ooooh mmmm Yeah...you try to break me and tear my walls down...I'll be strong as a warrior, no fear in my eyes will be shown Yeah...you try to chase away my positivity, but darling, I'm getting outta your torture town Verse 2: Bummed out and depressed because of my lonesome state My bipolar disorder is something I love and hate Don't I feel great...helplessly giving in to numbness I feel like complaining like that stranger that walked by...in mighty distress Pre-chorus: You whispered lullabies in my keen ears When I was drowning in my tears, You lifted me up above the ground where I knelt down, gravity-bound and doing nothing much My prayer was answered the moment you found me and kissed me - oh how I missed your touch Chorus: I'm here to stay...above under night after night and day after day To my dismay, the clouds are dreary and gray as can be today You're here to prey... Upon my helpless soul, Sensitive to your eyes, burning like black coal Yeah, you're a predator that hunts me down I'll keep smiling the pain away and wearing my upside down frown crown Ooooh ooooh mmmm Ooooh ooooh mmmm Yeah...you try to break me and tear my walls down...I'll be strong as a warrior, no fear in my eyes will be shown Yeah...you try to chase away my positivity, but darling, I'm getting outta your torture town Verse 3: I'm so worthless in this situation I can't...break free from this frustration I'm getting over you...going above under just to get through the dismay of yesterday I'm living a life without you and living a lie, sugar-coated by our endless fantasies - the truth fades away Pre-chorus: You whispered lullabies in my keen ears When I was drowning in my tears, You lifted me up above the ground where I knelt down, gravity-bound and doing nothing much My prayer was answered the moment you found me and kissed me - oh how I missed your touch Chorus: I'm here to stay...above under night after night and day after day To my dismay, the clouds are dreary and gray as can be today You're here to prey... Upon my helpless soul, Sensitive to your eyes, burning like black coal Yeah, you're a predator that hunts me down I'll keep smiling the pain away and wearing my upside down frown crown Ooooh ooooh mmmm Ooooh ooooh mmmm Yeah...you try to break me and tear my walls down...I'll be strong as a warrior, no fear in my eyes will be shown Yeah...you try to chase away my positivity, but darling, I'm getting outta your torture town Verse 4: I've grown accustomed to you and I got tricked by your devious ways My feet our growing numb by walking on thin ice these days I hop scotch around the place, trying to keep pace with my heart's rhythm and beat I stop myself from running into troubles and you carry me above my feet Pre-chorus: You whispered lullabies in my keen ears When I was drowning in my tears, You lifted me up above the ground where I knelt down, gravity-bound and doing nothing much My prayer was answered the moment you found me and kissed me - oh how I missed your touch Chorus: I'm here to stay...above under night after night and day after day To my dismay, the clouds are dreary and gray as can be today You're here to prey... Upon my helpless soul, Sensitive to your eyes, burning like black coal Yeah, you're a predator that hunts me down I'll keep smiling the pain away and wearing my upside down frown crown Ooooh ooooh mmmm Ooooh ooooh mmmm Yeah...you try to break me and tear my walls down...I'll be strong as a warrior, no fear in my eyes will be shown Yeah...you try to chase away my positivity, but darling, I'm getting outta your torture town Verse 6: But I'm below the universe above me Why don't you show me how to be truly free You told me not to roam too far away, but I was heading towards my abode You made me outta silver, diamond and gold...I was your personal favorite ode Pre-chorus: You whispered lullabies in my keen ears When I was drowning in my tears, You lifted me up above the ground where I knelt down, gravity-bound and doing nothing much My prayer was answered the moment you found me and kissed me - oh how I missed your touch Chorus: I'm here to stay...above under night after night and day after day To my dismay, the clouds are dreary and gray as can be today You're here to prey... Upon my helpless soul, Sensitive to your eyes, burning like black coal Yeah, you're a predator that hunts me down I'll keep smiling the pain away and wearing my upside down frown crown Ooooh ooooh mmmm Ooooh ooooh mmmm Yeah...you try to break me and tear my walls down...I'll be strong as a warrior, no fear in my eyes will be shown Yeah...you try to chase away my positivity, but darling, I'm getting outta your torture town Bridge: I convinced myself that you were my one-of-a-kind paradise road You were my gorgeous Rapunzel, but now you're a hideous toad I regret carrying all of your load on my shoulders and back You lied to me by telling me my life with you is on track To happiness beyond reason and logic I gave you pleasure beyond measure Your divine love was my marvelous magic Now, I'm left on my own to find my heart's cure Above the heavens, the Angels are echoing their hymns of hope and praise Under the hells, the Demons are calling for us with their insidious, sinister ways We're above under these sad, yet joyous days We're above under the peaceful, yet chaotic moon-rays, Disguised as sun-rays and it secretly preys Upon our precious, delicate lives...our souls goes their separate ways Oh how it strays Now we look up to shadows, reflections We look down upon our infinite woes, rejections
