(Boxing ring love song lyrics )
ON THE ROPES
Copyright 2004 - MickTerry.com

It's been a bloody, brutal battle,
an eternity in the ring,
with each round much more vicious than the last.
You'd think we'd try to live like adults,
but that doesn't mean a single thing
when each one's throwing punches from the past.

    This love is ON THE ROPES. It's ON THE rocks.
    It's headed out the window.
    This love is ON THE ROPES. It's headed south somewhere.
    This love has broken hopes. It's changed the locks.
    It's gone which way the wind blows.
    This love is ON THE ROPES. I'm so far out of here.

Although it's all been strictly verbal,
with no physical contact here,
each blow is felt severely to the bone.
And 'though all injuries are internal,
there's still plenty of room for fear,
with scars that bleed and fester when alone.

    CHORUS

        A jab, a hook, an uppercut to the jaw,
        A sucker-punch out of nowhere to the nose.
        A stab, you crook! Not playing by rules or laws.
        But didn't we ever care which way it goes?

To think we've come so far from loving,
to be ending up slinging mud,
and biting, kicking, screaming out of hate.
How did we let ourselves start shoving
raw emotions to the point we could?
How did we ever end up in this state?

    CHORUS

        What we used to be- doesn't matter anymore.
        What we used to see- has now faded.
        Where we're going now- is as open as that door.
        Where we've been before is overrated.

    CHORUS
