Pleased to notice you from afar
How I’d wondered how you are
I’m glad to see that life moves on
Even my fallen star
Even you, my fallen star
I tried to do right by you
But found the benefits did lack
With no help from you, I’ll help myself
I want to see your blue skies black
Thinking back on how it had seemed
Knowing now for what I’d dreamed
Makes me think that a fool was me
For how I’d wanted we
How much I’d wanted we
I had a dream about you last night
And all it did was to make me realize
That I missed you way more than you
Ever deserved
