I keep reading
Those last texts you sent me
So I can remember
Why you said we cannot be

But what we were
Those plans we made
We didn’t act them out
You wouldn’t press play

And I can’t help
But think to myself
That somewhere, someday
You’ll think to yourself

‘I’ve missed her
Every day since I left –
She’s a hard woman to leave
And impossible to forget’

Someone will ask
‘Well, why did you go?’
And you’ll tell them,
‘I guess I don’t know’

That’s when it will hurt
That’s when you will see
You lost a part of you
When you walked away from me
