Jamie Leonhart: Music

Spider & the Fly

(Jamie Leonhart)
January 29, 2008
Jamie Leonhart: words/music. Michael Leonhart: arrangement
You’re drowning in a sea of mediocrity
But don’t hold onto me anymore
It really is a shame you cause me so much pain
And never take the blame but keep score

Don’t rain on my parade
Don’t lie in wait on the web you made
Or you’ll become the prey
Maybe not today
But one day it will all come back to you

Do you think that if you suck me dry
You’ll be wise?
You’ll win a prize
For all to see?

And when it catches up to you
You’ll renew
Those lies you tell yourself
To hide the truth

Don’t rain on my parade
Don’t lie in wait on the web you made
Or you’ll become the prey
Maybe not today
But one day it will all come back to you

I fluttered my wings on your web, flirting
While slowly filling with dread
Wanting to be seen – knowing you’d be mean
and that you’d try to eat me in the end

Yes I let you know me and let you control me but no more!

Don’t rain on my parade
Don’t lie in wait on the web you made
Or you’ll become the prey
Maybe not today
But one day it will all come back to you
