Iím sorry I couldnít face you
for any longer than the time
it took to breathe and blink
and wrap my arms around you
before we untangled ourselves
in awkwardness

Iím sorry for all the things weíve become
in these years of absence
I thought in my youthful naivety
weíd be friends forever
but I donít know you now
and my face isnít the one you knew
when we had drunken midnight adventures
and still believed in ghosts under the bed
on those night we scared ourselves to sleep
in each otherís arms

Iím sorry I lost myself in the big things
and the little things and all
the things in between

Iím sorry you couldnít love me
when I waylaid the parts of me
that made me wild
tamed by circumstances
that I chose not to control
because I didnít know how
to live with myself any other way

Iím sorry I came here to night
expecting that we could be anything else
than what weíve become
in the years that have spanned our silence

Iím not sorry that I left
without the courtesy of goodbye
