"So Different"

We're so different now
Than the children we used to be.
Best friends, we called ourselves,
And I guess we truly were.
But now we have bills to pay
And jobs,
And carefree days of sitting by the lake, just talking
Are gone.
And you are obsessed with your prison
Of cubical walls and endless papers;
And I am still stuck in my prison
Of fond memories that won't go away
Even when I tell them to.

We're so different now
And so far apart,
So I think I'll leave
And go to where I came from
And forget my pain
And be free from Memory
And tell you, Goodbye
In this: the most friendly farewell
I can think of.
