Goodbye

We’re no good at hiding secrets

This is one thing

I can say for sure

Is not worth keeping

 

My mom’s already calling my bluff

She can tell what’s up

That’s just how it goes

A mother always knows

Right? 

 

My friends tried to tell me

That you would fail me

And that you most certainly did

But you also helped me

 

I needed to grow up 

Because I never showed up

In the way I should have 

In the ways I knew

That what we were up to

Was just no good

 

Now your wife’s calling me 

I think she suspects everything

She knows I’m more than a peer

What we feared

It’s all finally here 

 

I feel guilty

Simply empty

Your so-called love, our treachery

Wasn’t enough to fulfill me

 

I’ve got to let this go 

Be on my own for a little while

You know

It’s been so long since I’ve seen myself smile
