If You saw me now
Would I still be your Superhero or did I not save you when you needed me the most
fair enough...
I'm a bargain bin action figure now
maybe someday I'll find myself back on your shelf again

How dare your parents sell that house that you grew up in without consulting me
I was getting drunk down the street at David's house when I decided to pay your old room a visit... I still knew how to get in through the back
It still smells like candles it was clear that no one was home but I still hoped to find you here...
In your room was a box of things on your floor and a peculiar treasure chest of NOTES... I barely recognized my handwriting...
"Dear mamabear you know that I'm getting very hungry, so I'll be making my way back to your pantry. I'm gunna get me some Sugar and some Honey"
a response in your handwriting saying, "Andres you can't keep skipping Jazz band to give me Spanish lessons"
<3 <3 ;)

But I kept skipping jazz band didn't I sweety?
And we kept ditching school together whenever there was a late start
and I remember how intimidated I was by your mom before she warmed up to me
Or that tri-tip sandwich that I ate at that football game that made my stomach sick and you danced around me to cheer me up

I shouldn't be here right now but I picked up another note in my handwriting saying...
"It's both our faults. I love you. Last night was lovely and I'm so sorry I can't be with you right now but growing up is SO hard. I don't have anything but love for you. Even though we're not together I don't ever wanna feel a great distance between us because no matter what you're my best friend. You make me cry like a little baby, and only you can do that because I have so much for you in me..."

Let the stars align in the way that they're meant to be
I'll never force to love again...
the nights we spent as hedonists in your car making love...
I'll never forget...
I'm "on one" tonight meeting strangers in an empty pool
and you're still stuck in Bakersfield
When I wake up in the morning, no missed calls
just a text that says, "I hope you're ok. I hope you stay safe"
