The wind outside still screams your name. The leaves rustling relentlessly reminds me of those autumn nights, when I would hold you tight. Now in your mind, you break my arms a thousand times so I can never hold you close again. My eyes decided to block you from their vision. As hard as I try on these cold and dreary December nights, I lie in bed from dusk to daybreak, with my tightly fastened eyes, trying to dream of you just one last time. Oh Mary, why don't you just go around again? Oh Mary, why don't you stop drawing your lines so thin? I'm still trying to figure how you ripped my heart out yet again after I was just able to steal it back from you? I thought that this time I kept it pretty safe. So, I chug down another cup of joe, I refuse to sleep in fear that I might dream of you. How could you say that you love me and leave me without saying goodbye? Is this the way you treat your other boyfriends or am I just special in your eyes? And I can see the smoke billowing from your window where you're burning my pictures and I can smell the sweet scent of victory, you're losing my number and now you'll never call me up again. Please call me up again! This set of lungs took a vow not to breathe you in again. Eyes don't lie, they can't and they aren't sworn to secrecy. So, let this go and let it bleed crimson but don't turn away from love, hate, patience, silence was the last word that we spoke. I thought you were a friend of mine. I thought I knew you… never mind.
