All Of These Games

You see me as a know it all
So you want to prove I don’t know you
And to top it off
I often speak as if I do.

So you play all of these games
See how much I will go through
I hope when we’re done playing
You see I only played along for you.

I hope you have what you needed
Whatever it is, if even you do
And I’ll miss the life in me breathed
Every time I spent time with you.

There were times that we connected
No matter the games in view
And you’ll be a person always respected
No matter who else may have played the game too.

Hope you see my intent
Realise it was always true
And the only backwards steps went
Were the ones I gladly went with you.
