Running on Empty

How did we get here,
did we drift apart or were we never really close.
I can’t remember,
if it was you or me who started it first.
late in december,
we both expected the other one to call.
how did we get here,
don’t want to believe you’re really gone.

All of that, it doesn’t matter now.

I want to tell you something truthful,
only the truth is painful,
but If you want the honest truth,
I was more hurt by the sadness of everyone else.

Nobody is perfect,
it wasn’t my place to point out your mistakes.
what could I have done,
a million things now come to mind.
one of your sons,
I only wanted you to be proud of me.
nobody is perfect,
could that be one of the reasons why you’re gone.

All of that, it doesn’t matter now.

I want to tell you something truthful,
only the truth is painful,
but If you want the honest truth,
your other-self almost had me fully prepared.

Know I’m angry,
not even a chance to change your mind.
everyone cared,
and I’m sorry if you couldn’t tell.
my worst fear,
after all the years it’s finally realized.
know I’m angry,
you left without even saying goodbye.

All of that, it doesn’t matter now.

I want to tell you something truthful,
only the truth is painful,
but If you want the honest truth,
It was hard for me not telling you that I loved you.

Something about you,
I know you always did the best that you could.
alive in our memory,
all of the best times that we had shared.
what of your family,
they’ll continue on the best that they can.
something about you,
the good in you far outweighed the bad.

That’s all that matters now.
that’s all that matters now.
that’s all that matters now.

I want to tell you something truthful,
only the truth is painful,
but If you want the honest truth,
I try not to show it but I really do miss you, mom.
