I get it why people get dogs, write break-up songs, I get it all.
I see why we fight, regardless of who’s right- how you feel.
Don’t we just pretend to
Why it was never that simple.
I get that now.
I see the daylight rise while breathing out those we’ve lost.
I get it all.
Where the coffee pursed my lips, the mirage of October waiting in the wings.
And I get why we play dress up, trick or treat, lie to ourselves, lie to our friends.
I mistook our lies for friendship.
How expendable we are.
The beginning never resembles the end.
I almost forget why I came. And I don’t feel the same.
It breaks my heart to know what we left on the table.
Why we gave it away.
I get it, I get it, I get it all now.
