I threw you back in the water
Where it seems that you grew legs
Walked out on the other side
Shedding mermaid tales and former lives
Finally without me

I'll wish you well, as you move on
While it seems I'll stay the same
I'm thinking less about the plans we made
Debating taking out the pins
Throwing them away
These choices aren't mine to make
So I'll just be content
With memories of the only New Year's Eve I'll ever spend in my car

For all the summers we spent outside on the lake
I never doubted you were capable to navigate
The only thing that I ask, as you swim away
Please stay in the same waterways

I'll come down from the roof and
Put the ladder away
Apologize for any plans of yours that I delayed
Put away for good
Photos I've hung and hung again
Denied display
Given the context they were taken in

Into albums
To revisit again
Maintaining ties
There are more to be taken

For all the summers we spent outside on the lake
I never doubted you were capable to navigate
The only thing that I ask, as you swim away
Please stay in the same waterways

Please set aside
Spots for me in your life
Like year book pages we
Kept sacred in 2005

When you drive at night
Wherever you do
Listening to the Get Up Kids
Think of me when you hear "Overdue"

I know I shouldn't drive
But don't come pick me up
This was more about attention
And they've called me inside once

I can sleep here on the floor
Where we know that I am safe
Let me say again,
I'm sorry that I called so late
The only thing I ask
Since I can't ask you to stay
Please stay in the same
