You And Me

You so often like to tell me
It’s you and me against the world
But it’s not the world that is my worry
It’s the demons that unfurl
In times of insecurity
When our voices turn against
The ones that we hold dear
Cutting quick in false pretense
It’s what will happen
When the spark turns to flame
What once kept us warm
Destruction, became
And how many times
Can a Phoenix be reborn
Before letting go
Of what made her transform
I would like to believe
There’s always a chance
We’ll break free again
And not be caught in this trance
But when it’s you against me
We get wrapped up and tangled
Fighting demons that leave us
Feeling broken and mangled

This one sounds a bit familiar.

Sometimes you have friends that you fight with even if you don’t want to. That’s what you get for being stubborn, I suppose.
