Like A Stranger

you had no way of knowing
as you sat down next to me
you seemed just like a stranger
someone i knew just vaguely
instead of someone who said
they loved me constantly

you asked about our old dog
i relayed to you she'd died
i said i could not tell you
as all i could do was cry
you seemed to understand why
i had kept it all inside

you turned around to face me
there was sadness in your eyes
the life we'd had together
was destroyed by all your lies
i had no way of knowing
that you were going to die

no, i did not know that day
i'd never see you again
they said you'd died swiftly
when your car was hit head on
there are things i could tell you
but i can't because you're gone
