What to Keep

In a lie you will remember
what I meant to you
What can I keep then
what is true?
What did you settle on this time?
I did not bring it home
And before I said bye
would you think it wrong to let go?
I was another road to roam
I was a dream that could go on beyond that
And I was not against at all
I would go on until it was no longer
And it was all gone
That kid is not all right
In a lie you will remember
What I meant to you
What can I keep then
What is real?
What did you settle on?
I did not bring it home
A story to be tucked away from everyone
And if her eyes are dreaming, as are mine
Then how can I remember it as something nice?
It wasn't settled by the man
How to let go of dreams that are stuck?
It was all that girls fault
Her absence marked in every window you were looking in
And now you're gone, and I remember
It was all gone
It is not the end
