i remember the days when you were happy, i could see it in you eyes
we ran and played like little kids, like stupid fireflies.
beaten up and scared by life, abused and used like your father's battered wife
i didn't think it'd go that way, i didn't know you'd use that knife.
i write these dark things to get forgiveness maybe
but nothing i get, only your hate for me.
why she was taken from us i can't say, i'll never comfort or fill that hole,
i thought i'd try and take that pain, but then i lost your soul.
their backs are turned once again, a slip from grace my friend
the dagger that had pierced my heart has come back once again.
these steps you've taken havn't solved a thing,
an unwise move to breach your trust
if only i knew the pain i'd bring.
but back to where i've started here, a trip to memories lost
a simple kid with larger dreams, a friendship that has cost.
