Fly By Nights

Fly By Nights

If you let yourself be taken up

And then put down again

And again and again and again

Don’t expect your value to increase

For every time you are discounted

If they keep coming back to you

Make sure that you’re not waiting

Be far away from where they left you

And when they do not search

Then you are better for their failure

For only a spectacular act of selflessness

Could ever make your wounded heart

Forgive and trust again the bird that flew

Don’t let yourself be someone’s second choice

You are unique, you are magnificent

And you are already number one

To the one who proves they deserve you most

For your devotion is worth a hundred times

The fancy words and claims of fly by nights
