commonwealth avenue

i fell in love with you on commonwealth avenue
the sky has never been quite so blue
stars will never shine as bright as you  
all those long nights filled with elation  
 getting completely lost in conversation  
memories i’ve frozen in time  
because i know i couldn’t press rewind  
baking cake in your apartment  
spilling coke zero on your carpet  
spontaneous adventures throughout the city  
simultaneous smiles walking for miles went by so quickly  
how fast we inhaled those tasty eclairs  
or ran around aimlessly in harvard square  
not matter how far we’d go at any time  
we could still see the citgo sign  
the cherry blossoms in bloom  
reminded me you were leaving soon  
when i wrote you that book you should of seen the look on your face  
and how you quickly you made the space to proudly display  
holding hands every day down your hallway  
these memories will live with me always  
you went back home at the end of may  
said our goodbyes and watched you walk away  
with teary eyes we went our separate ways  
with the purest of intentions  
with every beat from my heart  
i wanted to make it work not to mention  
 even though we were worlds apart  
i tried to make it work but the more we’d video chat the more it would hurt  
i felt so far away from the heart inside you helped grow so intimately  
i’m not myself lately there’s something wrong with me  
i called you and selfishly broke it off and said i needed time to grieve  
because without you by my side i felt like i couldn’t breathe  
there’s nothing else i felt i could do  
the distance was killing me  
i never intended on losing you  
i wasn’t strong enough to wait for you  
don’t come looking for me i don’t deserve you to  
i still look at the pictures i took of you in your graduation gown  
thinking about that last walk we took around town  
to this day  
everything just replays  
wishing you could of stayed  
regretting that i walked away  
relationships may decay  
twin flames always find a way  
the sky hasn’t been quite as blue  
stars will never shine as bright as you  
i fell in love with you on commonwealth avenue
