It was the end of the week
It was the end of the work month
My spirit was high but I didn’t feel like working.
I was in a good mood
Listened to some good tunes
I wasn’t feeling down but I didn’t feel like working.
I hummed along to a good beat
Last song syndrome on my mind and on repeat
My menstruation was done but I just didn’t feel like working.
The hours crept by and then the end of the day
My heart sang with glee as I hopped my way out of the office
I fell in love with you but you didn’t
So that was an opportunity we both lost.
You fell in love with someone,
I got hurt and bruised.
Eventually I moved on and so did you,
But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.
Soon after your new love moved on without you
And we lost touch,
I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing
For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.
Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again
You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.
Our story ends here
Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.
Let me kiss you the way you’d want to
Let me hold you close
Let me not promise the world but to be there when the world ends
Let me be with you til the dawn breaks
Til the sun sets on us
Til we grow old and until our life is spent
Let me be…
Like the love that you gave
It was all just pretend
Nothing we do could ever save
The wilted feelings we felt in the end.
And like the plastic flowers on the table
We couldn’t do anything more than we’re able
Without a word and without hesitation
Without looking back, he left
He was my bad habit
Difficult to break
Hard to get rid of
But not impossible to end
Getting a little too salty for my taste
So I waved goodbye to him in haste
There are things I wish I could have done differently
Things I’d like to change sometimes
But deciding not to love you anymore
Was something I didn’t have to rethink at all
If my life was a movie
Would him and I end up happy?
