When you walked out of my life
nothing really felt the same
I walked around the streets in the darkness

The windows of my eyes blacked out
The doors of my mind shut
I decided who was worth saving during the cut
I saw the end coming
Feeling lonely, but not alone
Hearing you speak your Irish goodbye on the telephone
The mermaids siren song you sung

I liked the things that went unsaid
The message in the nod, the tilt of his head,
the eye contact held too long.
I liked his arms, skin brushing skin

When you stand by the mirror and boast,
