We’re far too young to have a past,
But frankly, things go by too fast.
The lives we live aren’t meant to last;
We can’t defy the roles we’re cast.
Your fever’s raging through my veins;
Don’t worry, it’s just growing pains.
You were so quick to take the reins;
Your love has left my skin with stains.
You came, you saw, you left behind;
You left me though I pined and pined.
Your plan was never quite defined
Until you said you’d changed your mind.
Now here I stand, rebuffed, alone;
I’d like to say that I am done.
Stitches fall out, can’t be resewn;
I’d like to leave but I’m not gone.
I’m wearing scars that you don’t see;
A myriad of pain in me.
Ambitions swallowed by the sea,
And dreams that are doomed not to be.
Those that leave cannot be rewon;
I chase you even though you’re gone.
I do not know why I still run;
My eyes are blinded by your sun.
And if you ever wander back,
You’ll find me mourning, all in black,
But I swear I will not take you back.
Our train has long since lost its track.
I love you because you can’t stay,
Because you’re gone by the next day.
You always cause my heart to fray;
But somehow I prefer this way.
