XX . . .

 

packing-up

Every trip that you took without me, whether for work or personal (sorry – I can’t bring myself to type “pleasure” because the truth just fucking sucks sometimes…),  you pleaded with me to miss you and stay true to you. You’d joke and say that I could call my “other” boyfriend to come over as soon as you left. And then you’d look at me with sad eyes when I would joke and say : “Thanks – I am counting the minutes.” And I’d have to reiterate that I was kidding.

You seriously thought that I would cheat on you.

Maybe Apparently that was your guilt talking.

You’re the whore chaser.

Fuck. You.

I don’t blame you
We got carried away
I can’t hold on
To an empty space

Now you’ve found a new star to orbit
It could be love
I think you’re too soon to call us old
When and where did we go cold?
I thought I had you on hold

And every time I let you leave
I always saw you coming back to me
When and where did we go cold?
I thought I had you on hold

Where does it stop, where does it stop
Where do you dare me to
You’ve got the body, you’ve got the body
Dare me to, dare me to
Where does it stop, where does it stop
Where do you dare me to
You’ve got the body, you’ve got the body

I thought I had you on hold

My young heart
Chance to believe
We were destined
Young hearts
All need love
Call it a lesson

The stars and the charts and the cards make sense
Only when we want them to
When I lie awake staring in to space
I see a different view

Now you’ve found a new star to orbit
It could be love
I think you’re too soon to call us old
When and where did we go cold?
I thought I had you on hold

And every time I let you leave
I always saw you coming back to me
When and where did we go cold?
I thought I had you on hold
I thought I had you on hold
I thought I had you on hold
