She joked that she’d always love me
In sickness and in health
And I lounged hungover in her robe
Before I passed out on her couch
And when I drove away
I never knew it’d be for good
One year flew by too fast
With memories of texts misunderstood
And the bridges we burned
But the love never fades
In a friendship left barren
Is this too late to save
And I keep the earrings
That she never wore
In the trunk of my car
Because I don’t want to forget her
Close, but not close enough
I keep the memories locked up
But what a crime that two people that love one another
Can find a day where they don’t know each other
