Have You already Gone?


Does this really mean

That I'm into you?

Oh no, no

I couldn't happen to be

Thee only boy for you

Let alone "at all" be a man for you

I drowned myself in my own love for you

Like I can never get enough

__of feeling this way

And it may seem funny, but

I don't even know the color

Of your eyes

Am I going my own way?

Am I gone?

I know that's just my first name

So if I think about that

Being an acronym in the full length

Of me

I must of went nowhere as well

So I'm still here

But are you not?

Girl, it's been such a long time

Since I've seen your pretty face

Are you gone?

Will you ever put out this flame?

It burns for you to put it out

Like you're thee only one

Who can

Girl, saying goodbye's not what I want

I only want a "hello"

Like the kind on a 'phone
