Goodbye-My-Almost-Lover

Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind images
You sang me spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes clever trick 
Well I’d never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me 

Goodbye my almost lover
Goodbye my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be? 


So long my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do 


We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me in the shade
And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you would never ever forget these images no 
Well I’d never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me 

Goodbye my almost lover
Goodbye my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be? 


So long my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do 

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot try the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind 
So you’re gone and i’m haunted
And i bet you are just fine
Did i make it that easy to walk
Right in and out of my life? 

Goodbye my almost lover
Goodbye my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Why can’t you just let me be? 
So long my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
Should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
