When I walked away,

I swore I'd never look back.

I swore that I'd forget you;

I swore it'd be the last.

When I walked away,

I shut away the memories.

I shut away my tears;

I shut away your laugh.

When I walked away,

I said so many things untrue.

I said we'd never last;

I said I didn't love you.

When I walked away,

I lied to friends and family.

I lied to make it easy;

I lied to erase the pain.
