I wish I could say 

things were different,

That I moved away and you stayed in town,

That I had finally found myself, and

That you had changed

and became the man you wanted to.

I wish I could say

there is nothing left between us

but smoldering ashes

and feelings that went up in smoke.

But since you called

I’ll tell you truth

Because you always could tell my bluffs.

I’m still lost in the same house

and I wander through your memory too.

It’s like no matter how far I stray

There is always something that pulls me to you
