What We Were
I look to you, the one who showed me my pricelessness.
I talk to you, the one who listened to all my complaints.
I listen to you, the one who told me we could have it all.
I walk to you, the one who led the way away.
But now, now as the seconds on the clock tick faster and faster away…
But now, now as the hand I reach for moves farther and farther away…
But now, now as the embrace I fall into gets weaker and weaker…
But now, now as we fade away, I see we’re not meant to be.
The spark was never there. Why did we think it was?
The connection was getting weaker by the day. Why didn’t we see it?
I can’t stay, I can’t hold on. Why can’t I understand that?
You have nothing to offer me, nothing for me. Why do I stay?
I can’t stay another moment. I’ve stayed for far too long.
I can’t reminisce. It would be too sad to remember how happy we were.
I can’t try to win your heart back. I never had it.
I can’t put you first. It’s my life, not yours.
I look away from you, the one who is causing the tears, then and now.
I say good-bye to you, the one who I wish I’d never said hello to.
I ignore you, the one who did the same to me so many times.
I walk away from you, finally breaking free. Hopefully.
