So many years I knew you
So many months apart
So many times our love had died
Before a chance to start
Our photgraphs, so faded
I watch them with a smile
This is not farewell, emotion's
Really not my style

I cannot still remember
The day that I first knew
That I could dare to dream of living
Side by side with you
On streets and fields and cities
Radicals at heart
A better world we made around us
Built to fall apart

Don't think I wish you suffering
Comfort or success
Don't wish you well, don't wish you ill
Don't pray that you are blessed
Don't think that I won't miss you
Here behind my wall
Most of all don't think I wish you
Anything at all

"Radicals at heart"
captures well the willfully numb goodbyes familair, I'm sure, to us all... reading this reminded me of The Cure's Boys Don't Cry... that was meant as a compliment. enjoyed.

For Love of Apathy
Apathy, ambivalence, numbness -- all delightfully captured. Actually, in my head the tune for this is kind of jaunty, light-stepping.
