53 Still Upright Album: 10. Abandonment-N
Lyrics
Abandonment
2014 Sahlen-Starburst

What's it been? A dozen years, time it passes by
No comfort in the solitude (of) questioning the whys
I always thought you'd come back home and take your rightful place
Denial's now the centerpiece, gone without a trace

(chorus)
When you said goodbye I didn't know it meant forever
A kiss, a hug, a walk away, return for you meant never
Forever's such a long, long time to not see you again
When you said goodbye and kissed my cheek, I should have known it was the end

(bridge)
Its only Pyrrhic victory
But this I won't admit
My mind's made up, I mustn't blink
Acceptance I'll commit

Abandonment, you're crushing me, the wound's so hard to heal
Entanglement of bitterness your power I'll conceal
The time has come; I'm moving on, I've taught myself to breathe
Abandonment, I'm crushing you, it's a new life I'll conceive

(chorus)
When you said goodbye I didn't know it meant forever
A kiss, a hug, a walk away, return for you meant never
Forever's such a long, long time to not see you again
When you said goodbye and kissed my cheek, I should have known it was the end
