I will be gone
In the time it takes to whisper my name.

These thoughts are coming out wrong.
Mouthing the words to your face,
But you don’t need to listen I guess.

You say we’re close,
Closer than ever before.
Closer than you’ve ever known,
While you’re in the next room.

I will be gone
In the time it takes to rush apologies.

Sorry if I wasn’t clear.
I thought explanations
Would fall on deaf ears.

Do you even realise
All you’ve done is prove me right?

Don’t lie to me
When all I really need is an honest word
Please give me that at least.

Don’t reach for the words
When there’s nothing to be heard.
Learn from my mistakes:
Just because you hear me,
Doesn’t mean I’m really there at all.

I'm not there at all.

You say we’re close,
Closer than ever before.
But are we really as close as you thought after all?
