Just Like an Old Friend

from Coward's Luck EP by Hip Hatchet



Oh you can forget
better than anyone i've met
memories for you
are just things that you regret

the poetry of concrete
doesn't resonate unless
my face is scraped and legs are broke
laying in bloody mess

Put some hate into my heart
and weight upon my chest
Ill try to give you memories
that hurt you to address

Photographs of better days
when we'd sit in the long grass
and i would lay my heavy head
into the comfort of your lap

The world that I once
used to love and own
Hates me cause i haven't learned
how to let things go

Images of her
that are burned into my eyes
Belong to fading friends
As i retreat into a lie

And I'l scramble for a purpose
even though I've reached some goals
Commitments and the distance
make you feel like you're alone

And you look like the ending
to a book i haven't read
when i close my heavy eyes
and lay back in my bed

I have visions of a place where i lived
where the wind blew cold and the snow stacked high
No matter what i did

and just like an old friend
that you haven't seen in years
it's regret that you expect
but disappointment that you fear
