Broken Friendship

<p>We said it was forever – said we'd never part,</p>
<p>I knew it was a line, but I still gave both of you my heart.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Said you would stay, promised you could.</p>
<p>You chose to walk away, I knew you would.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You're not there anymore, my dearest friends.</p>
<p>I hate to say this, but it is our end.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>By day you're one person, by night another.</p>
<p>Neither of them have anything to do with each other.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I sit here and cry for you – not for me,</p>
<p>What you've become, I wish you could see.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In your life you make friends that you're sure are true,</p>
<p>Nothing else matters, except what's between them and you.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You don't know if anyone has ever before felt this way,</p>
<p>For them you took breaths; you wanted to be alive every day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It hurts to lose a friend; it gives you the saddest frown,</p>
<p>And when a second one bails, it's like getting kicked while you're down.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And it hurts to be accused of something you didn't do</p>
<p>You guys should know better than anyone that I would never even think to.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You planted a knife in my back.</p>
<p>You were my life, but now, my memories of you are completely black.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am afraid to love another, but I know I shouldn't be,</p>
<p>Because the people in my life are perfect for me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There is this game I play,</p>
<p>Where I close my eyes and fade away.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I can't believe it's true,</p>
<p>but in this place, I can't even remember that I loved you.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You can't that's already done</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
