INDEPENDENCE DAY

Longing for the answers.. it's a mystery
Why would you leave and let me go
It's hard enough without a you and me
But it's killing me inside not to know
Every moment is a prison without end
When the verdict was rendered I wasn't there
Shackled to the memories of how good it'd been
Living in this limbo leads to despair 

Was it something I said or did
Is there another love in your heart
How did we get to this place
Where you'd decide to rip it all apart

Every moment is a prison without end
When the verdict was rendered I wasn't there
Shackled to the memories of how good it'd been
Living in this limbo leads to despair 
You were my lover, you were my best friend
I close my eyes you're still everywhere
Are we forever over or can we be again
Girl, living in this limbo leads to despair

You wanted freedom
An Independence Day
Left me in this prison
Nothing more to say
Forever locked away
Forever locked away
Forever locked away

Longing for the answers.. it's a mystery
Why would you leave and let me go
It's hard enough without a you and me
But it's killing me inside not to know

Every moment is a prison without end
When the verdict was rendered I wasn't there
Shackled to the memories of how good it'd been
Living in this limbo leads to despair 
You were my lover, you were my best friend
I close my eyes you're still everywhere
Are we forever over or can we be again
Girl, living in this limbo leads to despair

~Lyric Man

Note: I wanted to play off of today being Independence Day, but write something unexpected. A break up song as opposed to something patriotic or political.

You have expressed the pain of a lost love very well. It’s a sad scenario that seems to play itself over and over again in the non committal age in which we live.

It was an unpredicted kind of poem. It was very sad but good.

There is sadness within, yet hope lingers as well. We are never completely alone, even though sometimes it feels that way. Beautifully written and expressed. Happy 4th of July my friend. ~ Brandy

Hi Lyric, The title alone caught my attention. Although different from what I expected l still enjoyed the read. I'm a fan of your lyrics wheather they are happy, sad or romantic. I wish I could actually hear them one day though. Good job. PS, Happy 4th of July:-) Alexis

When the verdict was rendered I wasn't there. So powerful! And so often the case; I have to say people who sneak off and or leave notes are not worth pining about for long.
