There’s something so beautifully sad about you
Maybe it’s the way you wear your self when people are around
The subtle tightening of your boundaries whenever someone brushes too close
And as I watch you, I wonder if you’d call the love you gave a waste
Because there was an end to it, a breakdown that you could have never foreseen.
And when it’s three in the morning and you’re crying like you will never stop
Wishing so ardently you could take back everything you ever said
Feeling like you’d give anything at all to feel their arms around you
Just one more time, just once more is that too much to…?
Hey, I wish I could hold you. I wish I could take all that pain away.
I wish I could wipe away your tears and whisper, “Shh, shh, shh.”
Sometimes people come back. Sometimes goodbye isn’t forever.
Where’s the hope, you whisper. What’s the point?
Darling, if I knew that, you’d be the first to know.
