don’t tell me cos’ it hurts

Has a break-up ever come completely out of the blue, or is it more often that you feel it gradually building up? The excuses, arguments and tears more frequent. Patience becomes shorter, an unspoken distance that continues to widen. Until, of course, it is spoken. And then it’s done. You knew it was coming, but somehow you still can’t believe it. And while all the reasons are being laid out as to why you can’t be together anymore, you’re thinking, ‘Shut up, don’t speak’. Sometimes, you might even agree that it’s not right, but it’s not so much that the relationship is over, it’s everything that goes with it. Worse than the loss of romance, is the loss of friendship and worse than the loss of a friend, is losing a best-friend.

You and me
We used to be together
Everyday together always
I really feel
That I’m losing my best friend
I can’t believe
This could be the end
It looks as though you’re letting go
And if it’s real
Well I don’t want to know

P.S I still lust after Gwens dress in this vid.
