things we remember forever

I have found that memories always make us sad, even happy ones. Those perhaps most of all. Because in remembering, we are thinking of things that are gone forever. And I think that’s how I feel about you, because you also are gone forever.

Tragedy (written by bombasscas)

Lyrics:

The water is shallow
But still I can’t breathe
The last thing I wanted
Was for you to leave

But now that you’ve left me
It’s easy to see
That what you had wanted
Could never be me

The last thing I remember
Was asking you to stay
We wouldn’t last forever
Or even for a day

Was it worth the mess we made
Every single day
Reaching for the other instead
Of pushing them away

The flowers still bloom
Whether you’re here or not
You picked them away
And you left me distraught

I thought you were the stars
And I trusted you to catch me
I was falling for you so hard
But the ground is dark and lonely

The ghost of you will haunt me
Till I take my last breath
Even then you will find me
There’s no freedom in death

The last thing I remember
Was asking you to stay
We didn’t last forever
Or even for a day
