I stood outside your door
And fumbled for the key.
The one you gave to me.
When your eyes twinkled
As you said,
Your heart was mine forever.
And it felt like a thousand mornings
Shone their light upon you and I.
Everything felt right.
Yes, this key …
The one you’re taking away from me
Your eyes were so cold
As you shut the door at my face,
And I heard her laughing inside.
And just like that, just like this key
My love, yes, my love was effaced
And night stole into my heart.
And today, I feel so stupid
Standing here, outside
Still holding on to promises
Still yearning for dreams
Still wishing for forever
Still not wanting to sever our ties
Still wanting to believe your lies.
But the hallway was silent
And I heard my footfalls echoing
The emptiness, disturbing the stillness
Of that meaningless space
Growing between you and I,
As I finally decided to walk away
From that key
And from all those lies.
