As we stared off into the distance,

Backs pressed together, silence lasting forever.

While wondering where we went wrong

Feeling like we’re slowly moving along.

Hoping to start all over again,

But honestly this feels like the end.

 

Baby what happened, please tell me?

'Cause one second it was perfect, now you're halfway out the door.

 

We started as high school sweethearts

No one could ever tear us apart.

Our love was the summer sun, beaming down at everyone.

Every day, every night, every moment felt right,

But moving into the real world was nothing but a fright.

Countless missed calls, texting that stalls

Fights breaking out, I couldn’t help but shout.

When did our light turn dark?

 

Baby what happened, please tell me?

'Cause one second it was perfect, now you're halfway out the door.

 

Longingly looking into your once loving eyes

The emptiness inside that remains, brings me pains.

Realizing how I must let you go like Rose,

Taking a deep breath and letting my eyes close.

Hearing your soft footsteps fading away

Wishing for you to simply stay.

 

Baby what happened, please tell me?

'Cause one second it was perfect, now you're halfway out the door.

 

Refrain credited to: Taylor Swift - Forever and Always


The author's comments:

Laine Aulani M. is a decent driver, yet has never learned to ride a bike. Being an acai bowl connoisseur, every year when she travels to Hawaii during the summer she is always searching for the best bowl. She took out animal products from her diet so everyone, even her basketball coaches, calls her Vegan instead of her actual name.
