before you go
I wanted to tell you
that I have loved you so
tell you though you already knew
it’s how we blossomed
how we grew

the unspoken truth
that lay between us
was both the wedge and the glue
pried us apart and
kept us tight
‘til there was nothing else to do
but fight

still I am not your enemy
will you be there for me?
I am here for you

before you go
I wanted to tell you
this is how we grow
we learn our lessons in the hardest ways
it’s how we learn
but not regret,
it was no mistake

before you go
don’t forget me
before you go
don’t regret me
before you go
don’t resent me
before you go
just let me
say “I know…
I’ll always be here
‘cause I know you.
