I came here to see my old friend
But I couldn't find him anywhere
Do you know where he's gone
Do you know if he's coming back
I can see our friends don't recall
They don't remember the times
When we were so close they laughed
We were in love

Where's that time gone
Have we passed it by
I would have noticed
Maybe it's a waste of time

In the darkness
There are those little things
That tell me how to feel
The street lights saying you are my light
The pavement shines because of the rain
That's coming down to hide my tears away
The trees telling something's creeping
Round the corner
I'll never manage to turn away
It's gonna haunt me when I run
It's gonna haunt me when I stop
It's gonna haunt me, it always does

We're walking side by side
And the ghosts of our past
They're going with us
They keep on messing with my mind
What's that black shadow
That's running through the halls
Maybe it's you
Or maybe it's just us

In the darkness
There are those little things
That tell me how to feel
The street lights saying you are my light
The pavement shines because of the rain
That's coming down to hide my tears away
The trees telling something's creeping
Round the corner
I'll never manage to turn away
It's gonna haunt me when I run
It's gonna haunt me when I stop
It's gonna haunt me, it always does

How can you look at those tears of mine
And never feel sorry for me being terrified

In the darkness
There are those little things
That tell me how to feel
The street lights saying you are my light
The pavement shines because of the rain
That's coming down to hide my tears away
The trees telling something's creeping
Round the corner
I'll never manage to turn away
It's gonna haunt me when I run
It's gonna haunt me when I stop
It's gonna haunt me, it always does


The author's comments:
So after a few months of not seeing the person I used to call my best friend, one of my girlfriends called me and said that our group of friends were going out. So I came. He was there. We were all walking, that guy was walking by my side. Everyone was having fun, laughing, talking but not us. We were just going in silence. I didn't really care, I got used to it. Anyway, all those things that I was crying over in the past came back to me. I was just walking with him and thinking "how'd we end up this way? We were so close, we used to spend every second together. It's so awkward how he knows everything about me but it looks as if we met for the first time ever." Then, when we all said goodbye, I was walking home. It was dark, it was raining. I started crying. The thoughts wouldn't leave my head, they were messing with me, I looked at the trees, they were so dark... they looked as if they were hiding something. That's when I thought of the line "the trees telling something's creeping 'round the corner". I came home, wrote this down and felt better.
