Sometimes

They all ask me
As if I'll give them a different response
This time,
Next time,
Every time
Like the radio playing to no one
I think to myself about the past
Sometimes I think it'll come back to life
When I think of our past
Sometimes I close my eyes real tight
Hold my breath real long
Make a little wish real carefully
Sometimes I concentrate real hard
But then
Sometimes I fall, real bad
They all ask me
Like the last and first time
If I'm alright
They all ask me
Like the first and last time
Why
Hoping I may actually let them in this time
Sometimes they hold their breath
As I open my mouth to speak
Sometimes they stop mid blink
Attempting some premeditation
Sometimes I force I smile
Hoping I may actually ease their souls

Sometimes I fall for the past
But I know, it'll never last
