Almost Lover

Standard

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 wanna 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
Should I 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 wanna 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
Should I 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’re just fine
Did I make it that easy for you
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
Should I known you’d bring me heartache?
Almost lovers always do

Sabe quando não é um verso, nem uma estrofe, mas toda a música? Esse é o caso. Toda a música faz um sentido absurdo. Como se eu tivesse escrito, no caso de eu ter qualquer talento para tal. Como não tenho, alguém teve e escreveu, e eu copio e colo completinha no blog porque sou esse tipo de pessoa. O tipo que faz apelos desesperados e silenciosos para quem nem se quer está ouvindo. Esse tipo de pessoa.
