The stars and the moon
Fell from the sky
It all fell apart
Before my eyes.

Unable to bargain
To change your mind
Having to face
You’re no longer mine.

You hold her hand
Kiss her good night
Tell her you love her
While she holds you tight.

No second chances
No way to save face
You disappeared
You made your escape.

Tickets for two
One seat left empty
I had no clue
That you planned to  leave me.

All of our friends
Now picking sides
Wondering why 
We didn’t try.

Feeling betrayed
Lost and alone
Facing the truth
You’re not coming home.
