Apart (7/5/06 RRC)
It’s funny when it finally becomes apart.
You both know from the start
But you give it a go anyway as if to say
“See me not caring and not feeling pain?
What’s to remain except a few scars?”
And the memories come hard, even the good
Like you know you shouldn’t dwell when it’s obvious like that
And there won’t be another call is all
And you won’t go back again
‘Cause ‘friends’ is stranger still
But you couldn’t really know it until that last go round
It wasn’t will broken down, there were no lies
Just a vapid, shallow goodbye
Echoing in the hollow night
Wisps of lonely, devoid of moonlight
