Bleed Into Me

from Like Clockwork by Color Theory



At the ice cream shop
You always wait and see
Thirty other flavors
Why the same as me?
You borrow my CDs
While yours gather dust
This is getting old
We need to discuss your trend
To adjust and bend

It’s like you bleed into me
Imitation is flattery
But it’s gone too far
You are who you are

Do the things I do
Eat the foods I eat
Read the books I read
Watch the same shows on TV
Beer instead of wine
Coffee over tea
This is getting scary
I’m not sure you realize
That you idealize

Please don’t change for me
I’m ashamed you tried
Don’t assume my ego
Must be gratified
Still you show no sign
That you are aware
This is getting awkward
You’ve become a parody
A false heir of me

The more that you become like me
The more you disappear
The more alone I feel inside
Whenever you are here.
