The Last Stretch Of Road

Love in the shadows
Wont get us anywhere
Things born in darkness
Never see
The light of day
Ive tried to be there for you
Every step of the way
Ive tried not to judge you
Because I know what that feels like
Ive tried to bring you balance
And all I got was torn apart
Ive always been a storm
But you my friend
Are the true hurricane
Its been a long road
And the last stretch of road
Is always the longest
You want to be my friend
But you have never been that
So how can you offer it to me
Like its something of honor
When there can be none
In turning away from
Somebody who loves you
The way I love you
You keep chipping away
At the foundations
And eventually, the wall will fall
Crumble into pieces
And crush me in the process
I can’t believe that’s what you want
And if it is then
Everything we have had has been a lie.
