I’d like to pluck the glowing orange sun
From the sky and place it in your chest,
‘Cause maybe then it’d
Warm your heart up enough
To change your mind,
And claim back lost time.
The sun’s rays beat down on me,
Kinda like the words you threw harshly,
And I can hardly stand here knowing
That somewhere across town, you exist
Who are you these days, where are you going,
What do you see?
Are you blinded by the memories?
I wake up thinking of you, and my fiery
Tracing over all the dreams of you…
I wonder if the sky reminds you of the days
We spent scorched by the lake
Playing by the light of the sun,
Talking about where we’d be when we’re 31.
When did you lease your soul to the North Pole?
Was there a promise that you’d get through it all?
Did you look up to the sun and know your heart
Would no longer feel the warmth?
Or were you content with the idea that you’d
Be able to go on and easily forget?
My heart’s begging me to let you go,
Or, rather I think it’s a mixture of broken pieces,
And shredded thoughts that remind me of the bitter cold…
The truth that I cannot let go;
The truth I painfully regret;
The truth that overthrows my nervous system,
Taking care to spread the wintry spell throughout,
Creating massive, icy chills over the surface of my arms,
Then landing in my soul like an invisible assassin,
Ready to murder the memory of you,
Ready to introduce me to a life anew;
Life without you.
You’ve made your choice, and now it is time;
Time to seal the pain,
Time to erase your face,
Time for bright, new days,
And, time to overlook your ways…
It’s time to ignore you,
And time to face the truth,
Time to forget everything concerning you—
And, as painful as it is to admit,
The thought of you fleeing my soul is appealing,
And I never thought that I would say this, but,
You can’t make a heart stop beating,
And you can’t make one start again…
This is no longer in my hands—
Farewell to you now,
(It’s been a long time coming)
Tell your heart to let her guard down,
Cause this time I’m not running,
I’m standing strong
And, I know it’s what I had to do,
So that I,
Let go of,
