The Ones Who Got Away

We all started 2017 together

Counting down the seconds to enter a new chapter in our lives

To enter more adventures and experience new things

To make resolutions we were never going to follow through

We planned to do it all over again but you didn’t make it

 

You couldn’t handle the stress this year brought you

You forgot I was here to talk to

You decided you wanted to leave

I wish you were here to talk to

 

We all started 2017 together

Counting down the seconds to enter a new chapter in our lives

To enter more adventures and experience new things

To make resolutions we were never going to follow through

We planned to do it all over again but you didn’t make it

 

They said they’d be your friends and your family when you needed one badly

They lied and instead introduced you to drugs

The drugs introduced you to guns

The gun introduced you to death

 

We all started 2017 together

Counting down the seconds to enter a new chapter in our lives

To enter more adventures and experience new things

To make resolutions we were never going to follow through

We planned to do it all over again but you didn’t make it

 

I can’t believe you got away
