Been gone so long, god damn i’m sorry
Haven’t been myself, i know you missed me
I know I’ve been absent, god forgive me
You are my eyes, now let me see

You changed a lot, good god believe me
Sometimes my past just feels so empty
My memories aren’t what they should be
Why shake the ground of my belief?

Your weary eyes got lost in mine
We pissed away all of our time
Shaking hands and looking busy
I hope you don’t forget what made me me

There’s so many things I wish I said
Things, as they happen, I forget
People I did not say goodbye to
When you told me you loved me, I wish I believed you

So as we lay here like two strangers
Who never knew a meaning deeper
We smoke and fuck and pray away the day
Trying to change things that we both know we can’t change
