The Aftermath of Us

Our laughter 

And smiles 

Follow me like ghosts

 

When did joy turn to anger

Happiness to sorrow 

Where did we go wrong?

 

Once our hands

Bound us together

Now we walk separate paths

 

The ghosts of yesterday haunt me

Did we end because we didn't try

Or did the pieces never fit?

 

I'm free from the chains 

That bound me to you

Free from the thing us became 

 

It's true that we did the right thing

We had good times

But they faded to bad ones

 

Could we have stopped the break?

Why did we fall apart?

Were we always just friends?

 

The questions my haunt my soul

Yesterday may dwell in my memory 

But I just miss what we once had

Not what we became 

 

In the end you and I 

Should have known 

That we wouldn't last 

 

One day I'll find true love

And so will you

But it won't be with each other 

 

She'll love you 

In ways I never could 

And you'll love her the same

 

You'll drop everything

For a second of her time 

And she'll do the same 

 

When you both say 

I love you 

Your hearts will agree 

 

Our love was like a child's first

Your love will be true

And it'll last 

 

And someday I'll do the same

We both deserve happy endings

And real romance 

 

In the end we let each other go

Because we loved each other

Because that's what friends do 

In the end that's all we were
