I sat by the ocean & drank a potion to erase you.
Face down in the Boulevard, yet I couldn’t face you.
There ain’t no use in crying. It doesn’t change anything,
So what good does it do?
Your friends, they all sympathize.
Maybe, I don’t need them too.

You. Me. & a lie.
Silence is closer.
We’re passing ships in the night.

There’s nowhere to run away.
Said,
“boy if you want love, you’ll have to go & find it with someone new.”
“do you know who you really are? are you sure it’s really you?”
Lies are a funny thing.
They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you.
Time wounds all the heals. Then we fade out of view.

You. Me. & a lie.
Silence is closer.
We’re passing ships in the night.
End to the night, left with nowhere to hide.
Closer…
& closer…
We’re crashing ships in the night
