the simple things

If there were the simple things 
laced across the ground
 would the sadness catch you?
Would the temptation make you drowned?

If there was the fire near
 Blazing like a million sun’s
would it once again grab you?
Would it remind you of what you’ve become?

 Will there always be the tear for you
Scattered in her eyes

Will there always be that fear for you
the one that’s laid like a mat at your door
that she’ll come waltzing in the door again
with her dresses with satin seams

Is it always there for you
or could I make It go away
if she’s always there for you
if so why should I stay
