Stranger

This goes out to the people

Who turned the other way

And became real strangers...

 

How you doing?

Last I heard you holding up

A lot happens

Amazing how in a flash

An instance turns into years

We went from shoulder to shoulder

And now life has taken place

Now, no longer a warm shoulder

Turned cold

Just a ghost of memories past

Funny how people change

I am no exception but

A lot has changed

Its all become dull

Almost forgot the image

And cover on your face

I got a few pictures

I got your picture

And kept the contacts

Now both a waste

All in storage

Its time for a block, burn and delete

 

Stranger...

Stranger...

Stranger...

 

The mind slowly replacing you

With new memories

New folks and new lessons

The days when reunions came with wisdom

All gone and forgotten

I've kept you "til now

Its time I went away

We promised to stay

Now its time for a new start

A new birth elsewhere

Maybe its me

Who turned and looked the other way

Maybe its me

Who went away but

Kind of figured

It would happen someday

You where my closest

When you cried and feared

We cried and feared together

When we hoped and believed

We hoped and believed together

I get the picture

Life is ready to take it away

But people promise that they will be in your life

Yeah, I see you'll

A lot has changed

Maybe I don't have a lot to say

So, all I am left to say

Is who are you?

 

Stranger...

Stranger...
