Sebastian VIII

It's the end of our era
It went by all too
Fast
I swore that I would stick with you, and 
That had been my plan
You held my heart just by the 
String,
You broke it oh-so-easily. So 
Before it had the chance to smash, I took 
Back all my promises

I'm walking down this trail alone
It's not as icy as I
Thought
Yet I lose my step every now and then, without
A single hand to hold
I am the only willow weeping down this 
Lonely road for miles
I bent my back to please you, amazing how it never 
Snapped
I believed all your excuses and tried
To make up for what you
Lack

You are no longer a child
But you still
Play on the playground
Your parents are the nightmare that made
You climb into their bed
They kept you from your happy endings, but
You are too afraid to leave them
I wish you were the man I'd wanted you to be
You would never change for me; it
Doesn't matter what I
Did

I'd like to think that I'm okay, though
The truth is that I'm not
You were the first to say you loved
Me
A fact that I hold dear
But when I dared you just to show me, you
Denied my last request
I pled with you, then turned to go
You'll never know how much it hurt when you
Let me walk away

As we both go our separate ways, I hope
You'll think of me someday
Meanwhile, caught up in the storm you 
Left behind,
I'll kick off my shoes and dance barefoot
In the rain
I know I'll see the sun again, because
It's never gone for long
You are just a mirage of happiness
A flame of false hope that
Flickered 
And burned out

I'm walking down this trail alone
But it's a beautiful day
I left your playground once and for all
And I couldn't be happier
