Blind Side

The last day of vacation,

you told me things had changed

 

The last day of vacation,

each word seducing pain

 

The last day of vacation,

a new look in your eyes

 

The last day of vacation,

unveiling your disguise

 

The last day of vacation,

your back to turn away

 

The last day of vacation,

our future gone astray

 

That last day of vacation,

the sun had left the sky

 

That last day of vacation

—hello became goodbye
