I remember the last time you left
All the promises you made
Telling me when you came home
Things would be okay
Talk, talk, talk of marrying her rolling off your tongue
The baby needs a daddy
But the baby's daddy is gone
I'll never leave again you said
You promised things would change
They did change' for a little while
But then it went back to the same'
Not that you're at all alone to blame
I know you really meant it all
Wanted a normal life, your family
But blamed your internal conflict'
Your 'sickness', your 'disease'
-Slowly things got worse again,
The fighting to a point of no end
So just have another drink
An attempt to wash it away
The next morning bringing that acid taste
Of things neither of you ever meant to say
Hear her call the cops
See your daughter's tears
Feel so much hate inside
Separation-again, your biggest fear
I remember the last time you left
Visiting- & how hard it was to walk away
I want you to know,
I know you never meant,
For any of this to happen
But it's still another extended stay.
