They don't tell us that people will move away.
They don't tell us that we might take different paths in life.
They certainly don't tell us that one of us might pass away unexpectedly.
There's a lot of pain and distrust tied up in the word "friendship."
This post is for those relationships lost, for those drifting away. For the people who you used to talk with every day, but can't remember the last time you heard their voice.
"The Way it Was" by T.E.
"This is a song I wrote after a close friend of mine, someone I talked to nearly every day, suddenly stopped talking to me. When I realized I was losing him, it was like losing a part of myself. After a couple days of moping around, I sat down and decided to write this song and tell him how I felt, even though he probably hasn't heard it and he has no idea it's about him.
That's what writing is to me, though. It's my way of speaking to people when I'm too scared to tell them how I truly feel, and it's my way of coping with emotions I don't understand.
Thanks so much for listening."
