lyrics

When I was your soldier,
I went in to fight
When I was your boulder,
I held it down all night
When I was the keeper,
I swore I'd never tell
When I was the reaper,
I swore I'd give you hell

When I was your shade tree,
you hid beneath my limbs
When I was your river,
I taught you how to swim
When I was your appetite,
I gave you my skin and bone
When I was your mountain high,
you sat upon my throne

When I called you brother,
I felt it from the start
When I called you lover,
I meant it with all my heart
But when you took another,
I fell to the floor
and when you called him lover,
I walked out the door
