What Happened to {Us}?

October 26, 2011
Thursday night, middle of the summertime,
Still awake, you know I don't wanna fight,
Crying on the back porch, then I see your shadow across the lawn, now you're here, I can breathe.
Thursday night, I'm sorry if I hurt you,
Don't you know, I'm always gonna love you,
Then I hear your whisper, can't believe you came,
now you're here, please don't leave... ..but you did.

What happened to us, what happened to all the plans we made,
the things we said we'd do someday, that never came to be...
What happened to you, what happened to all the ways you used to be,
you used to make me laugh and now we're tears in the rains of yesterday,
what happened to everything,
what happened to us.

Friday night, I'm right here and you're right there,
one quick glance, met with your confusing stare,
Sitting in the same room, fate remains with question, I don't know, why we both ended up here tonight.
Friday night, I'm sorry if I hurt you,
Don't you know, I'm always gonna love you.
Maybe now its different,
but now that I can see you it comes flooding back...

Let your hand slip, losing my grip, now you're gone.
I wanted your touch, I just couldn't hold on.
Let it fray, here's the edge, and its finished.
Beautiful disaster, silent scream. fading song.

What happened to us, what happened to all the things we dreamed,
the ways we'd conquer everything, as long as you were here with me.
What happened to me, what happened to all the ways I used to be,
you used to make me dance and now we're tears in the winds of yesterday,
what happened to everything,
what happened to... us.

...I'm sorry.
