we walked, ran, and walked
from brace faces to watching the other walk down graduation
Denying that blood was thicker than water
Like a battered coat I was hung up
For newer, patched-up sweaters
And after all these years
I still remember that one late night phone call
I heard nothing but tears and fear past midnight
I was tired and you were tired and afraid and I had exams that morning but regardless
by four you claim you saw dawn breaking
And you said if there was ever a chance you could do the same You would ...
Can you pay me back now?
we're already broken, so just put away your pride
So that your new friends won't feel like me
Therefore, please don't.
