You did love me

So I trickled out if your life As water through a spring Smoothing over the points and rocks alone An adventure I didn't give you another thought You were irrelevant to me I told myself this religiously Just someone I used to know Until now that is Now I've done everything I wanted Traveled the world Now your everything I need Standing in front of me Funny how life turns the tables so easily Do you remember how it used to be with us Yes, we used to be In love Is that what you call it I remember it differently I remember never knowing exactly So I ask a question that's lingered forever Would I of been your wife if I'd stayed Yes this is all you need to say The bitter weathers beating at your cheeks The air now almost too cold to breath Leaves crisp underfoot This revelation will destroy me yet I'm just passing through I say Trying to hide the injustice Of watching you play with your wedding ring I'm just passing through This Certain clarity I see Is Soul destroying My island Carved out of the consequences of my decisions Starts shacking I feel it swaying, I see it starts sinking I was safe here until this evening The birds start flying The fish swim deep Nature scarpers emotions erupting My island was tropical once Now it's an iceberg The revelation of this truth Ignites our old youth My lake starts rippling, from indecisions Confusion Settling in As you did love me in the end I remember the enormity of the hoping Not knowing Was soul splitting It was easier to leave you than not knowing So I went traveling Stumbling until i got used to the terrain We were children One tiny decision changed everything I started mapping out my future Carving you out of the paper island We were so young Brought up on summer sun Dry grass under foot The way it always got Warm nights you no longer get the world was a different place then than it is All that was certain your not loving me Your not caring Scared of saying The simplest sentance Has brought us to this moment All i was sure of Now means nothing I'm just passing through I say After all its Christmas Ill be gone by new year You can go back to pretending your wife is the love of your life I don't say this aloud I was nothing I'm just passing through I say As nothing can be changed
