so that was that.

Almost Lover by A Fine Frenzy

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

I 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
I 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
Images

And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you’d never ever forget these images, no

I 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
I should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive 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
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

“Come stay with me”
“No, I can’t”
“Why not? Come on…”
“I can’t…I’ll just get hurt in the end”
“Hurt? Hmmm just this one time, come stay with me for awhile. I’m serious.”
“And I’m serious, too. I can’t…I don’t want to”
“Sure? Please stay with me”
“You know I can’t. Don’t do this to me”
“Just for a drive. I’ll drive you home”
“No, it’s okay, I’m just gonna go with ***”
“The reason I came out tonight with them is because I wanted to see you”
“Oh, really? Well, I didn’t really expect you to be here…”
“Exactly. So, come on, stay with me”
“I can’t…please. I can’t”
“I’m serious. I want to be with you tonight…This is what I want”
“What you want, yes. Not what I want”
“But I want you. I’m serious, I’m not playing around. I really want to be with you tonight. Or else, why would I try so hard to plan tonight?”
“You’re sweet…but I can’t. Please let me go…Some other time maybe…”
“No, I want tonight. Come on…I don’t usually ‘beg’ a girl, you know”
“No…I have to go…”
“Sure?”
“Yes”
“Really sure? Sure sure?”
“Yes, really sure, sure sure”
“Sigh…..okay then…”

Took all my might to say no.
And I didn’t think it was gonna go this way at all. But I did the right thing. Not only for the other concerned party, but for myself as well. Being true to myself. Heh. It was fun out with my friends tonight and with him there. Sigh.

Let’s sleep it off :)
