Change

It's good, inspiring
Or so they say.
Yet, tears roll down my face
I liked you the old way

When you:
Smiled with your eyes
Hugged like it was our last goodbye
Held back your tears when you wanted to cry.
When you didn't act that much like a guy.

I hate that you're:
Cocky, egotistical
Arrogant, superficial
Like I'm a waste of your time.
When Change comes along
Friendships shouldn't be compromised.

Just when I think you'll never be the same,
I see a glimpse of the old you
And my pain fades away

Yeah! He was really mad! A lot of people had told him he'd changed and he didn't want to believe it! He didn't talk to me for a long time. But everything's cool now!
