Conspirator

about

This one also came out in a clump in 2013. I was dating a couple different people and feeling an incredible amount of love at the time, and then started to think about what it would feel like if the love went away- and so this song was birthed out of imagined heartbreak.

lyrics

You played me like a puppet
With no strings attached
You told me to follow my heart
And then you pushed it back
You asked me for my everything
And then away you turned
And so my heart went up in flames
And I was left to burn…

The Universe conspires for our hearts to be broken
The Universe conspires for our hearts to break open. x2

And all the lies you fed me
Kept me satisfied
You kissed me with my eyes closed
While your eyes stayed open wide
And I could ever understand
Just what else I should do
You told me to follow my heart
So my heart followed you…

The Universe conspires for our hearts to be broken
The Universe conspires for our hearts to break open. x2

And in the morning I awoke
To see it all had died.
The stagnant feelings complicate
The life that life that lives inside.
I bet you can not realize
The gift that you gave me
By breaking the lock from my chest
You helped set my heart free…

The Universe conspires for our hearts to be broken
The Universe conspires for our hearts to break open. x2
