Blow out the Flame
I've been stalking down the wrong path.
I'm not alone, but behind you and her.
I've been here ready to catch you.
This just isn't right though.
I love you, but if you don't love me too,
In my opinion, I'd better turn around.
My love, can we just be friends?
I'm sure we'd make the best.
I've been your test of loyalty.
Congrats. You've passed. I'm through.
I'm turning around back to my life.
you've held me hostage long enough.
Let me go. I'm leaving now.
We'll still be friends. I'm always here.
I can't love you anymore.
Time to walk back through the memories.
Dang! It's like stalking backwards on a clock.
I'll always remember the times we had.
Time to live them with a new flame.
I think it's time I've blown you out.
