Conman

Why do I make promises

I know I’ll never keep

And why do I only make them

To myself?

I swear I’ll do better

Try harder next time

Con myself into thinking

I’ll get it right this time

And when I don’t I tell myself

It’s a victimless crime

But the conman inside me

Forgets the ones I care about

Neglects the ones that count on me

They’re the ones I’m letting down

But I can’t seem to stop lying to myself

Always kidding myself

That I’ll make a success of myself
