Dear Lauren,


Dear Lauren,

Your head is on moving mountains

While your heart is broken into thousands

And today you fell off the track

But I'd like to guide you back

Dear Lauren,

Your soul sings a song

But your words don't keep it long

And I'd like to know

How the last verse will go

Dear Lauren,

Sometimes things get bad

Even after all the days we have had

And I've begun to notice how you sigh

The pink cuts along your thigh

Dear Lauren,

You can't escape their glue

This isn’t what it should’ve come to

Try to recall the better times

Even though it’s getting harder to climb

Dear Lauren,

It’s time to say goodbye

To the people who left you behind.
