You said you left the game
Went on to a new one
But we know you aren’t coming back
Because once you leave this game, your gone
You never respawn in a new game, a new life

I wish I could of talked to you
Told you not to leave
Told you you were safe
To not tie that necklace
But your gone now

You said you were happy
All roses and cream
But we know you wore a mask
That covered your scars and bruises
Your true feelings and thoughts

I wish I could of talked to you
Told you not to leave
Told you you were safe
To not tie that necklace
But your gone now

Sometimes I just dream of the old days
When you were here
But those times are gone
And I’ve turned a new leaf

I wish I could of talked to you
Told you not to leave
Told you you were safe
To not tie that necklace
But your gone now
(X2)

Aww, thanks! Meant to post this under “song lyrics” but I guess it’s also a free verse :)

This is beautiful! I love the metaphor of the necklace and the meaning behind it.
