Goodbye…

…my almost lover…

He said something like
“I might love you”

And she believed him.
He also said
“It could be you I really want”

And she got her hopes up high.
But then he said
He definitely needed to be alone
.

For quite an indefinite time.
And inside…
she died…
because in fact,
he had not lied…

and what have we learned?
-> hypothetical sentences MIGHT be killing…

__________________________________________________

Your fingertips across my skin, the palm trees swaying in the wind – images…
You sang me Spanish lullabies, the sweetest sadness in your eyes – clever trick…
Well, I’d never want to see you unhappy, I thought you’d want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover, goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you, can’t you just let me be
So long, my luckless romance, my back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street, you took my hand and danced with me – Images…
And when you left you kissed my lips, you told me you would never, never forget
These images…
Well, I’d never want to see you unhappy, I thought you’d want the same for me

Goodbye my almost lover, goodbye my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you – can’t you just let me be
So long, my luckless romance, my back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache,
Almost lovers always do…

I cannot go to the ocean, I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning, without you on my mind
So you’re gone and I’m haunted and I’ll bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy to walk right in and out of my life

Goodbye my almost lover, goodbye my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you -can’t you just let me be
So long my luckless romance, my back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do…

(A fine frenzy – Almost Lovers)
