You’re lonely enough now

To love me more easily … well,

I don’t want you, not this way

What has brought you here

Will lead you away, and

I’ll be left with bitter memory

Don’t make me regret the years of

Loving you by leaving me

Just stay away

I’ll continue longing for you …

This longing doesn’t need memory to

Know what to reach for

If I could only get a hold of you,

Set my heart in your black hair

Would that be enough, or

Isn’t love stranger …

Would you

Tremble again

As if you still think of me,

As if I still loved you …

What was it you said,

You were the type I’d soon forget …

I should not have believed you

Some mornings I still reach for you

Before opening my eyes

I forget the reasons, but I loved you once,

Remember …

Part of me is here, part of me is missing

Since the last time I saw you

You went, I stayed

Like the frame of a stolen painting left behind

Two winters, a fractured truth ago

But I can’t stay here any longer

The place knows too much

Two winters, a fractured truth ago
