And if I lost the map, if I lost it all or fell into the trap, then she’d call. When you’re tired of racing and you find you never left the start, come on, baby. Don’t let it break your heart.
Though heavily we bled, still on we crawl. Try to catch a cannonball and a slowly burning tide. Through my veins it’s flowing, from my shipwreck I heard her call and she sang. When you’re tired of aiming your arrows, still you never hit the mark. Even in your rains and shadows, still we’re never gonna part. Come on, baby. Don’t let it break your heart. Don’t let it break your heart.
Just before nightfall I decided to take a walk outside. The sky was low, enveloping any object in its reach. It formed a dull, purplish haze - like nothing I’d seen before. The streets were empty. Not a single soul was out. It was oddly peaceful - imagining I was the only one left.
I’m sitting here thinking of all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I’m sorry for that. I’ll always love you because we grew up together. You helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know, there will be a piece of you in me always. And I’m grateful for that. Whatever someone you become and wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love. You’re my friend to the end.
