Stop, drop and exit

No Love Lost

 

Slide-shifting excuses like sunshine through trees

Pinning shadows to mirrors in efforts to see

But no rhyme or good reason conjoins you to me

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

I’ve not paid attention to things that I should

Lost hours in daydreams, none of which come to good

I’ve spent too much time on “If only I could…”

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

The stars in your eyes were the place I got caught

Though slowly I’ve realised I’ll always fall short

My untutored heart needed this lesson taught

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

Will it e’en reach your radar, this thunderstorm news?

Ignore this blip, else trust turns into abuse.

I know I won’t cuckold the one who you choose

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

I need to re-frame – get some air – change my view

Unhook from this refrain – make everything new

If I’d only stop wishing and wishing for you

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.

 

This tempest will calm and the feelings will fade

I’ll have no more need of this vain masquerade

But know you were much-needed light to my shade

It’s time now to stop, drop and exit:

It’s time for goodbye.
