the person you leave in your wake, you know
remains alive without your touch
and i will not allow the doom you've wished on me
you're in for a big surprise

you've lost your influence, i'm not sorry to say
your voice shall go unheard

all you choose to leave behind
still grows in your absence and
one day you will hear the songs i've sown
and realize
i can be strong
with or without you
and i'll grow stronger still
to bear the burden you have left on me but

it's not to spite you although i'm sure
you think that i've kept some grudge but
without your departure these melodies wouldn't
have swelled deep within my lungs

i know you left to travel far and see the world
but there's a journey here

upon a road you never bothered
to walk and now we will never hear
the songs that might have been
if we sang
so, for now, i'll sing this one for me
i don't need a duet
when just one voice can shake the earth
take cover

i won't abandon
our old mementos
because they show me the times
that we once shared
yet show me futures brighter still, so

i will not forget you like you
seemed to forget me
because your past is part of who you are
and trust me,
i do not regret this hell you left to me
it's now a badge to show the lessons you have taught
with your goodbye
