Following you. Almost sounds like falling for you. And maybe those are the one and same thing; following and falling for someone who inevitably has a long string of followers that have fallen for you too....
Following you. Into a deep abyss of abrupt conversations, sudden compliments, cheesy jokes(more)
Following you is something that I have always done
Everything you did, since we were young
The life you lead was my favorite one.

Following you is what I know how to do
Your decisions and actions, I tried to pursue (more)
Following You

I remember you held me as I learnt to ride a bike
You showed me how to kick a ball
And even though you grew tired of my constant failures

You can barely hear the muted crunching and shuffling of footsteps breaking thick snow behind you.  

Of course, you know who it is. It's always the same one person. He's been following you since - oh, he's been following you since before you even learned how to toddl(more)
You were older than me, and never let me forget it. We looked alike though we never would admit it. We even acted alike. All because of my unconscious attempts to be like you, my big sister, whom I've always admired. I followed you. Your actions, your attitude towards(more)
The ghosts of my past follow me everywhere
Pictures on the wall, the shadows over there
These persistent things never cease
They even haunt me in my dreams
Your cries I hear, my beloved dear (more)
"Following you, cowboy."

Pitch black. Just the way I like it. I hook in and slowly start to drop. The wall is moist, lots of moss too. This place must be thousands of years old. My headlight doesn't hit the other side. The whole place sounds like a(more)
"Are you... following me home?"

"Uhm! I didn't, I mean, I wasn't really thinking-"
