The false fires that we stoked
With the petty lies we’d hope
Would bring us closer together
But happiness was in the never
As we fibbed away forever
Did you remember too much?
Or forget what it was all about?
Have I just lost my golden touch?
Or was there just never any doubt?
So it took so long to figure me out
What we had was a specialty
Loving me all night in the dark
The words we shared were a travesty
It didn’t take too long to get to me
My bite’s no match for my bark
My heart just snapped in two
When I realized you were playing
I’d stay up all the night asking who
All this time I stayed and you strayed
And I never thought to level with you
Now I’ll remember too much
And never forget your parting call
There’s no salve or a crutch
That will keep me standing tall
I’ll just keep on thinking too much
