"I can be surrounded by a sea of people and still feel all alone." - Tennyson

A single lone tear runs down my cheek
Looking back on that small short week

I knew what would have happened if I stayed
But I couldn't, wouldn't ever be played

You told me you loved me with all you had
But it wasn't enough and everything went bad

Your never-ending absence weighed a ton
But then you returned, along with your gun

You said, "If I can't have you, no one can."
I told you to suck it up and be a man

What I remember most was the look on your face
And I knew I would never again be in this time or place

I didn't get to say good-bye to my family and friends
All I want is to go back and make amends

To tell them I'm sorry for all I did
But, unfortunately, adieu is what I must now bid
