Suffice to Say

I got this message from your name

You’d been listening to Ocean Frank

And it made you think of me, you hope I’m doing great

And hoped it wasn’t a mistake

But wait, as things were coming to an end

You said that you’d be open to use still being friends

Mentioning we should eventually reconnect

Before you stopped me by blocking me on all the interwebs

So I took that moment to ask if you were interested

You said you were and asked if I’d be into it

I said I would it don’t gotta be nothing intricate

Just wanna know, how’s life been since the time that we were intimate?

Admitted, I just wanted to say what’s up

Maybe remind myself exactly why did we break up

Half-expecting you to want to try and make things up

But when you didn’t I had to put this into quotations

 

You look just like the girl that I used to date

But something about you has changed

It makes me want you back but that’s a risk I can’t take

Suffice to say you’re different and the same in all the best ways

 

Last I heard you were moving to New Orleans

But here we sit inside a café in Portland

And you look gorgeous but I guess that’s not important

It appears as though our time apart’s allowed you to move forward

‘Cause you seem so happy, like I was holding you up

You push your comfort zone and don’t rely on anyone

No longer want a relationship, no, you just wanna have fun

Unlike the girl who said she’s ready to settle down with someone

But you still look fine and your smile’s still a masterpiece

Still look in my eyes as we talk so casually

All the inside jokes still come so naturally

As all the good times simultaneously come back to me

And this has to be a front

But I miss you so much

But I can’t forget the reasons why we’re no longer one

I gotta keep my head up and think straight because honestly

This is not about you, it’s about what I want you to be

 

You look just like the girl that I used to date

But something about you has changed

It makes me want you back but that’s a risk I can’t take

Suffice to say you’re different and the same in all the best ways

 

I must ignore the voice in my head, what it says messes things up

It’s the train in the distance that Paul Simon sings of

And it never goes away

It only changes shape

I just can’t help but feel like I made a mistake

 

You look just like the girl that I used to date

But something about you has changed

It makes me want you back but that’s a risk I can’t take

Suffice to say you’re different and the same in all the best ways
