Private Project

City of Pines

Started back
On a long and dusty road
No turning back
My voice it starts to choke
It's a long lonesome road

You said your piece
On the phone it's plain to see
You don't need me,
Just some space to be free
That's the words you spoke to me

Stop and repeat
Is this the end of you and me
Wait and see
Let's not jump to hastily
As you're sobbing on the phone

This is letting go

Toss in my sleep
Calling me at three thirty
You cannot speak, coherently
Talk about my shortcomings

Your feelings fleet
They fluttered out with broken wings
Was plain to see
To everybody else but me

Now I'm crying all alone

This is letting go

We're just two peas
Plucked from the garden differently
Our paths don't meet
Move along divergently
Struggle to find my peace in me

Was it a dream
Another social casualty
Stop looking please
There's nothing left to take from me

We'll face our burdens on our own

This is letting go
