it was late at night, you know
when the stars shone above the
wet pavement
as you walked slowly, meandering,
towards your destination

it was late at night, you know
when you said goodbye without
any words
the blue in your eyes telling
me more than you could say

it was late at night, you know
when i crawled in bed to find
a single tear
beneath my pillow case
the first and the last to fall

it was late at night, you know
when my heart, belonging to another,
broke for you
like two hands falling from
each other for eternity

it was late at night, and i know
that i can’t ever give you
what you want
what you need
my eyes can’t stand to always see
the pain in the soul of another
after all, i put it there.
