I feel the distance between us growing As I know you're no longer here And this town is a big place But not big enough for us both. My heart burns As my memories fight themselves Trying to determine whether to stay Or go like you did. I know it wasn't easy Living so close to me But it was a comfort knowing you were still around Still living. Where I live now This is no home It feels empty and overbearing But our home no longer exists either. I burned it to the ground with my deception The choices that destroyed us But just because it was necessary Doesn't mean it doesn't hurt. Believe it or not, I do love you And I wish it could have been enough At least to let me die in dignity And spare you from this pain.
