Unwanted, rejected, forgotten, alone
I know these things aren’t true but I still can’t control
The way I always feel every time that she is gone
There’s no time when she’s gone feels like she’ll never return

An eternity for me goes by in seconds for her
What the fuck is…

Remember those bonfires every Friday night
And all the excitement of youth in our hearts
All of a sudden, by chance there was a spark
An unexpected love that burned so bright

A long chain of events that happened just right

Working long hours underneath the warehouse lights
Where it’s never quite day and it’s never quite night
Counting the hours until the time is right
