You smile so easy as you tell me you’re leaving, and I want so much to believe when you say you’ll return

 

But you’re averting your eyes and I’m sensing the lies, as you kiss both my hands and I make no demands

 

What if I should say I wish you to stay—would you still run away and desert me this day?

 

Why waste the breath when I know you will go—why question for answers I don’t want to know?

 

It’s a difficult thing, watching your back—as you drift out of reach, your cold footprints I track

 

I’m searching for a shadow in the pitch black of night; I’m chasing a ghost, and being tricked by the light

 

Many times you pop up when I give up all hope, and I hang on to you from the edge like a rope

 

If you snap and I fall, I’m destined to break

 

If you loved me at all, you’d remain here for my sake
