How can I say your name without bitterness filling up my mouth?
‘Cuz just this morning, 5 am this morning
I was walking through the streets we used to walk together,
And I remembered us- half lit cigarettes amidst dim skies,
Looking for a place to eat
A place to chat
A place to search for possibilities
Of you and me
How can I not fall back in love?
When all you ever did was make sure
That each word you whispered
Would find their way to my heart
Make it beat so loud that
I can hear the ‘I love you’
Whenever you ask if I’ve already eaten
Whenever you walk me home
Whenever you kiss me on the forehead just when you think I’ve fallen asleep
How can alcohol not work?
I’ve downed countless shot after shots
But baby, you are a memory I never want to forget
Because all I know
Was you loved me
And I broke you to pieces.
