slowly but surely

(this time)

i will let you go

but all of my actions

tells it different so

i have to realize you can never be mine

and be contented with the fact

that somehow some time

our lives intertwined

cruisin’ together

i don’t need you to stare at me

for us to be able to sing in the same tune

heads stretched for that high note

you always took the girl’s part.

you pointed at me, knowing i would sing the guy’s part

automatically

just as automatic as breathing in and out

even in your presence.

how wonderful it is to know

that the other me’s

can make friends with the other you’s

I knew it.

I called it when I felt it.

I want to see it right smack in my face – because that is the only way I’d ever know how to let you go.
