Verse 1

Written in red ink in neat cursive,

"Keep me at a corner of your heart,

But I'd be at the center, I know."

Well, you've ran your course, it's time to leave.

Now I'm tearing those pages apart.

And in this darkness I've found a glow.

Chorus

I used to be haunted by your memories in flashes.

But now I can fall asleep with dry eyelashes,

And a smile on my lips,

It doesn't hurt so deep.

The burden's off my chest.

Tonight I'm getting some rest,

And dreams where you turn to ashes,

Forever gone from my dry eyelashes.

Verse 2

Yeah, you said, "sorry for all the times,

I made tears fall from your sweet small eyes."

Wow, what a poetic description there!

Don't apologize for petty crimes,

Don't think you fooled me with all your lies,

I've known all along that you don't care.

Chorus

I used to be haunted by your memories in flashes.

But now I can fall asleep with dry eyelashes,

And a smile on my lips.

It doesn't hurt so deep.

The burden's off my chest.

Tonight I'm getting some rest,

And dreams where you turn to ashes,

Forever gone from my dry eyelashes,

Bridge

And my life.

You can't even look me in the eye,

Move beyond a polite "hi",

Guilty about all the nights

When you made me cry.

You played hangman with too many dashes,

I filled in the blanks, dried my eyelashes.

Chorus

Now I'm not haunted by your memories in flashes.

And now I can fall asleep with dry eyelashes,

And a smile on my lips.

It doesn't hurt so deep.

The burden's off my chest.

Tonight I'm getting some rest,

And dreams where you turn to ashes,

Forever gone from my dry eyelashes.

A/N: I wrote this for an old friend from high school, but I guess it works as a love song too lol :P
