Just One Word (day 4)

All I needed was one word
All I needed was more time
You know leaving’s not an answer
I’m no better at goodbyes

 

Two more minutes to pretend
you’re not running off tomorrow
Two more minutes to release
all the rocks and gems we hide

 

But you were the only one
planting seeds of hope
Building and breaking
a tower built on insomnia

 

You should have known
I can’t leave the same way
throw memories down the drain
I’m cursed to remember everything

 

All I needed was one word
All I needed was more time
You know leaving’s not an answer
I’m no better at goodbyes
