Kelly I can't believe it's come to this. You know I gave you all I could. I'm trying to tie up between train trips and all that I can think of is when you would come to my room carrying news.

Unglued and tied to the tune, you read me your blues. And soon the fools that were two were one in a big bloom. So won't you tell me the truth? How did I lose you?

Kelly I can't control the weather but I can sure try to change your mind. Cause even when we were together, I never even stepped outside when you would come to my room carrying news of true beautiful views and winter sky blues.

I didn't know what I was willing to lose when I had to choose. It just proves I was a fool to ever leave you.

Now I just can't miss your forgiveness.

Kelly I can't go on pretending. I'm prepared to do what it takes and once this train reaches its ending, well I'll stop by to say that you were such a solution and I'm a mistake.

    Maybe he tried his best to be his best self to Kelly even though his best may have been his worst. All she gave were simple things but they seemed liked they bore the importance of the whole world. Maybe that is true. Maybe he constantly let her down, and she was always so willing to forgive him because her love was very strong and withstanding, but time after time, she got exhausted of feeling manipulated and maybe even felt somewhat resentful for allowing herself to be vulnerable and decided that it couldn't be possilbe for them to keep repatching and starting over. After he decides to end it, maybe he decided to do it because he knew that he was hurting her, but after now he wishes he could be with her again, and her loving mistake. He just needs to correct himself and come back to her when he is ready to be truthful and honest. I am sure she will be waiting.
