“Our forgotten friendship

Haunts me as I

Go by you
Everyday

When I talk to you

You turn away

I try to make an effort

But it’s not the same”

Our forgotten friendship

Haunts me as I

Go by you

Everyday

 

When I talk to you

You turn away

I try to make an effort

But it’s not the same

 

You would laugh and talk with me

And tell me funny jokes

Like you and I were the only people

In the world

 

You still act the same

To other people

But I feel like dirt

When you treat me like you do

 

I think about you everyday

The way we used to be

And you would say

Hey, let’s get together

Sometime soon

And I would beam with happiness

Inside

 

I ask if you want to come over now

You say, sorry, busy

And I try not to show a reaction

But inside I’m crying

And I can’t feel
Can’t think

 

We used to sit together

Everyday

Talk about our future

And plan

 

We would go to

Greece and Rome

Paris and London

Everywhere

Somewhere new

Everyday

But then we didn’t have it anymore

Well, you didn’t have it anymore

 

And you became closer with

This person

And shut me out

I was afraid and lonely

 

I tell myself each day,

Maybe you’ll be my best friend

Again

I hope for it

 

And I cried about things I shouldn’t have

And said things I didn’t mean

I wish we could be friends again

 

So maybe you’re thinking about me right now

You probably don’t know I’m feeling this way

But if you do I’m sorry

Because you shouldn’t have to suffer

 

Maybe if we became closer

It wouldn’t be that great

But maybe, just maybe

It would be

The same
