Transient

Life gets in the way
How did I find myself tired and tried
I lied when I said that I couldn’t remember
I just thought it better
That we let the ending stick this time.

Listen — love is transient.
Maybe we meant it at the time
I remember being sure
Of someone so unstable
It felt like those final seconds
Before you fall asleep.

Life gets in the way
When mornings in your room
Began to smell like other lovers
I began to wonder
But I couldn’t find the time
to make this feel less flimsy
Well maybe you’ll keep missing me,
But the ending has to stick this time.

Listen — love is transient,
I wasn’t meant for permanence
But I want you to know
Your body was once bread to me
And I lied when I said I couldn’t remember
I just think it will be better
If I let you fall asleep this time.
