"I was thinking how nothing lasts and what a shame that is."-Benjamin Button


You sleep very well I hear
Your work is not conflicted by tears
Your friends don’t notice if you have any pain
Your family thinks that you’re whole and you’re sane
You seem to me that you’re doing quite well, you’re doing just fine
My mistake to have thought I would’ve taken over your life
I can remember the last time that I saw your face
It haunts my memory your sweet, sweet grace
Your presence, it lingers here, controlling my space
My soul hasn’t left my body to occupy your defining place
So I’m left in misery,
to sit here and wonder if today you will come back to me
But you don’t know
how I feel
And I can’t tell
if it’s indifference, anger, heartache, or love
that is making a wider gap to a distance I created, I made
I made
a choice
and that choice,
didn’t include you

Truth be told
I’m frightened of home
Home is where you stayed
Aren’t you overwhelmed by the memories of five weeks made?
Maybe you don’t care cause you’re doing just fine
No matter how far you are, you’re still always on my mind
As far as I am
farther from your heart
but closer to a brand new start, I made
I made
a choice
and that choice,
didn’t include you
Oh honey,
I made
a choice
and that choice,
didn’t include you
So I shouldn’t be crying over you
because I made that choice
that life altering decision
to not be with you
So I shouldn’t be crying over the consequence of a choice I made
I made
a choice
and that choice,
didn’t include you
