You said that we’d be friends for ever,
But forever seems to last near never.
We tried and tried and we’re still trying
But we can face it now, our friendships dying
It started all in grade eight
For friendship I thought id have to wait
A new kid job was never fun
I’d sit alone, in the mid-day sun
You approached me one day, asked to borrow my pen
That was the day, I made a friend.
I missed you when the school year would end
I was missing you, missing my best friend.
I told you everything, told you my lies
You Listened to my laughter and listened to my cries
But something happened along the way
There was nothing I could do nothing I could say.
You made a new friend, no jealousy did I express
I panicked inside, left alone I stressed.
I understand that these things happen
I knew from the day you took my black pen.
It’s over now our friendships gone
We have new friends and time goes on.
Now and then I pass you, and nothing is said
I smile at you, and then drop my head.
But somehow through words unsaid
The sorrow in my heart, you somehow read.
