His family’s angry at him now
For having done what he has done;
But yet I’m sure the way he feels
Is meaningful to him
He knows that somewhere people are
So much in love that passion reigns;
But he has not felt that in years
And it’s a thing he wants
Or feels he needs, I do not know.
But she – she could not give it him.
And so he left her, and their child
To seek the “newness” once again
I understand, but still I think:
To give so much up, without fight —
It might make sense inside his heart
But that will never make it
