Last Night

Last night all of my fears had come true,

Because when I was walking home, I ran into you.

I saw you out of the corner my eye,

And at first, I wasn’t sure if it was you or another guy.

My heart started to race, even though we knew there was a chance of us meeting,

But all of my fears came true, because there ended up being no greeting.

It didn’t hit me until I realized that our paths would cross,

And it was hard to convince myself that it was still your loss.

Because what I was afraid of happening happened last night,

And even though I didn’t want to admit it, I guess my suspicions were right.

That we walked by one another as if we were total strangers,

But I guess that helps my heart from being in any more danger.

It was until we got close that I was able to make out that it was you,

But I didn’t know how to feel, and I didn’t know what else to do.

I guess I’ll never know if you happened to see me too,

Because when we walked by each other, you looked down at your shoe.

Was it on purpose that you happened to have your phone in your hand?

Or was this something that you had already had planned?

Did you pull it out and look down because you saw that I was about to come?

Or were you already on it, so there were no feelings left to make you feel numb?

I guess four years of friendship are now down the drain,

And at this point we only have ourselves to blame.

We both messed up, and we both said some things that we shouldn’t of,

But I guess that is what happens when it comes to love.

You both end up doing stupid things, and it never happens to work out,

And I have learned to accept this without a shadow of a doubt.

But I guess that is the answer that I needed for me and you,

Because a year ago, that is not how we would have acted if we saw each other, we would have 

hugged and talked like we would always do.
