Mixed Signals

Highs and the lows
Ups and the downs.
Feels like fate’s spinning us round and around.
Back and then forth
Good mixed with bad.
Nothings the same, till it feels like we’re mad.
Kissing and fightin’
Kissing and fightin’
Hoping and Dying and Loving’ and Cryin’.
Forcing each win.
Demanding our share.
World dragging us down, we get up on a dare.
Not Looking Back
Not Giving Ground
Living the dream, eking every last pound.
Kissing and fightin’
Kissing and fightin’
Hoping and Dying and Lovin’ and Cryin’.

**Steven Erikson

A Common Mistake

Let me never fall into the vulgar mistake of dreaming that I am persecuted whenever I am contradicted.
