“The Rules”
Lyrics & Music by Celia Farran
© 2018 Red Granite Goddess Publishing / ASCAP

On the surface you were always Mister Wonderful.
Told her you’d treat her like a Goddess to make her stay.
But when it came to loving and true listening…
You tossed your torch in turpentine. And the coward ran away.

Chorus 1:
Did you ever notice things burn around you?
Go up in flames no matter what you do?
And there are no exceptions to the smoldering rule.
Bet you still don’t understand why she burned around you.

On the surface you played such a good Prince Charming.
You spun a tale of romance: Forever and a day.
But when a real live woman stood in front of you.
You crushed a faithful heart, packed your lies, and ran away. Ooh

Chorus 2:
Did you ever notice things break around you?
Crumble to pieces no matter what you do?
And there are no exceptions to the shattering rule.
Bet you still don’t understand why she broke around you.

Bridge:
Why did she stay? Why did she stay?
Playing Russian roulette with those past traumas. Ooh
Why did she play? Why did she play?
I suppose she got addicted to the drama.
Aaaaaah

Chorus 3:
Did you ever notice things corrode around you?
Dissolve into nothing no matter what you do.
And there are no exceptions to the disappearing rule.
Bet you still don’t understand why she left you.
Bet you still can’t comprehend what you put her through.
Bet you still don’t notice why things break around you.
