A Long Goodbye
Why can't I just forget you
do I have to hurt so much,
my mind rewinds back to us
I still feel the linger of your touch.
I haven't slept for months now
see what your love has done to me,
how can my broken heart ever mend
when you consume my memory?
I've thrown away our pictures
and your T-shirt that I wore,
the scent of you was still on it
I couldn't fight my tears no more.
I called you, and when you answered
I couldn't speak past all my pain,
I just wanted to hear your voice
to feel my heart beat once again.
Then you said, " I know it's you "
and tell me you were wrong,
that you miss me oh so much
and without me you can't go on.
But I know it's just another lie
and she's still there with you,
how can you say those words to me
when you know it isn't true?
I'll have to go on without you
and dry these tears I cry,
I hope she makes you happy
for it's been a long goodbye.
