if you change you can stay
we didn't mean like that
if you change you can stay
to change like that
is to become a lie
to myself, to you, to everyone
then you made your choice
go
but i'm only
you made your choice
you've only had me for
go
two hundred and eleven months
and six days
remember it's your choice

how will i
pack what you can carry
but
there's twenty, it's a start
go now it's your choice
what am i supposed
you'll make more
lie on your back
isn't that the way you do it
we told you
all you have to do is change
and you won't
so go

the door is closed
porch light out
curtains drawn against the night
two hundred and
the worry is gone
his choice is made
eleven months
left and out of their lives
and six days
twenty quid and a stern word
two hundred and eleven
months of disappointment
and six days
shut out
and told to go

three hours of waiting
waited for the the door to open
two hundred and
it's ok, you can come back
almost missed the last bus
eleven months and
stared at the door from the stop
until it was hidden by the bus
six days
and three hours of waiting

driven away to a life i chose
because i couldn't lie
two hundred and
waited for two years
to see if you would care
for you to come and find me
eleven months and
you never did
six days
