“What the hell, might as well”

Were not the words I wanted to hear

As you lean in

Impossible beauty in slow motion

Ringing my bell

Again.

 

On the last night

Before I leave this town indefinitely

You are definitely

The only one I didn’t know I wanted to see

But you’re feeling so right

In my arms

And I don’t know if it’s the smokey air

Of this small town dive bar

But tomorrow I want you next to me in the car

On my way to a new life.

 

Next day, last hour

Before I leave this town indefinitely

And it was definitely

Not just the air.

Hug goodbye,

Feel the shape of your body against mine

So right

And then

“What the hell, might as well”

Why only now?
