Lie Beneath the Stars

The culmination of dinner and drinks

The wine was peeking through her blush red cheeks

My hands around the small of her waist

Our eyes locked at the door to her place

So what’s this feeling deep down in my bones

Telling me I should go on home

I’d best be leaving

Because staying feels like cheating

 

And in a moment of weakness

I’d leave to go get my fill

When I’m too deep in the cup

My pride gives way to my will

I go out to see an old lover

And open up 1000 scars

As we lie together

Beneath the stars

 

A benchmark is set by a first love

To which another can never rise above

Because after a relationship ends

I see the past through a rose colored lens

So it’s nothing that she did or said

It’s just an image I’ve got built up in my head

I wasn’t trying to be deceiving

It’s just that staying still feels like cheating

 

And in a moment of weakness

I’d leave to go get my fill

When I’m too deep in the cup

My pride gives way to my will

I go out to see an old lover

And open up 1000 scars

As we lie together

Beneath the stars

 

Clouds lift as the sun peeks through

Shame was setting in with the morning dew

Once again I’m all alone

As I wake with my head on her stone

It doesn’t matter if you’re here or not

I meant forever when I said ‘til death do us part

I’d best be leaving

Because staying feels like grieving.
