Shrinking from the faintest signs of life and the distant roar of heartbeats.
And then our daylight promises became midnight's regrets. The silence screams the words we smiled and swallowed instead. It wasn't enough just to walk away and admit defeat. Ignorance has a price tag. She smelled blood and bit down deep. Drain me of my will to breathe. Drain me of my everything. Meant to be, just not with me. The litigation of my exsanguination. He said "Can't we..." she said "Speak to my attorneys. Now pay me for eternity."
Abandonment, so we meet again. Welcome back old friend. The clock was winding down and apparently only one of us heard it tick, tick, ticking away. The soundtrack to rejection, so familiar. The reasons why and the one-sided goodbyes. There's no starting over. No getting past this. I've used up all my second chances. And now that you're gone I get to be alone with all of my things. I've never been so happy, never never. So I'm yesterday now? Turns out I can live with that. And you can't make me feel weird for talking to my cats. It feels like my birthday.
They tell you that you've got to know exactly what you want from life. Sometimes it's better to decide what you refuse. I'm going to live right now. While you're counting down your days wishing for something better I'm out here doing everything with what I have. Now, I'm gonna live right now. Soon to be forgotten underground. You won't matter when you're gone, and we don't last long. All I am is now. All I have is time. While you're waiting for answers to fall from the sky, you're just dying for the rest of your life.
