We'll See

For Natalie

Finally left alone
Now you've got away from me
Things had gone quite obscenely wrong
Until my luck ran out, and you broke free

And what hurts me most
Is that I cope so easily
I'd always thought I'd become a ghost
Give up my life, and pack and flee

But here I sit and shrug and smile
When talk comes onto you
And I'm in love with other girls
And don't seem to think of you
But this is merely a façade I've built in front of me
And how long I can maintain it, we'll see

I wonder why you've left
But I must accept you have
Or should I consider it all a theft
Of all the things I know I need to live

So here's the love that's gone
So very unexpectedly
Which means a chance to turn and run
Into something new, and not to flee

But here I sit and shrug and smile
When asked about what's new
And I make love to other girls
And don't seem to think of you
But this is merely a façade I've built in front of me
And how long I can maintain it, we'll see

Bridge:
And I won't pretend to be the keeper of the dream we had
If there's a chance to get away, you bet I wouldn't hesitate
To betray our past and never care whom that made mad

But here I stand and stare
Ever trying to blame you, and I wish you did care
Here I walk away
Ever trying to listen to the nothing you say
You've left a gap
That it will take years to fill
And here I'm trying to act like somebody who just takes that he can and who don't care what tomorrow he will...

But how long I can maintain it
Yes how long I can maintain it
Yes how long I can maintain it
We'll see

It took me a week or two, ending on June 21, 1994.
