Running…

~

No matter where you are…
No matter what the situation…

Know he’ll never forget you…
Despite your condemnation…

Despite how you treated him…
How you filled him with a sadness…

At the way he was discarded…
In the midst of your angry madness…

That put him on the side line…
And took him out of the game…

He’ll never look at you differently…
You will always remain the same…

And though your decent into insanity…
Tried to drag him down too…

He still can’t shake his feelings…
Can’t shake the images of you…

As in the midst of the silence…
In his depressive solitude…

He remembered all the good times…
Even if they are now subdued…

And the pictures of your face…
Slowly whirled around his mind…

Knowing that for each cutting word…
There were moments you were kind…

And stood in cold isolation…
He had the chance to reflect…

On everything you said to him…
The words that left him wrecked…

And wishing he’d never met you…
Wondering where it all went wrong…

How you came to the conclusion…
That his lyrics didn’t fit your song…

That tainted all those memories…
Of the good times that you shared…

The brief but stolen moments…
Where he felt like you really cared…

Yet he never will forget you…
He’ll carry you deep down inside…

But the boy must now start running…
And those eyes must never cry…
