There was a time he loved her.
Now it's clear there's nothing there.
He walks around so flippantly
With no interest or a care.

Never knowing what would come with the light of tomorrow.

From an inescapable memory
Because of the lie she kept telling herself.

Running from the bear.
Just when I think you're gone,
You once again are there.
