with each passing day

Yes, she saw him there
When he walked right past her
Tried to act like she didn’t care
But caring could outlast her

Couldn’t admit it
But it was plain to see
Just like a poor queen’s gambit
Declined not so tenderly

like a neighbor who lets the fence rot
thinks a thin coat of paint is what it takes to stop
the hurt in her heart when she turned and walked away
will just come back stronger with each passing day

Sure it was right
Of that there is no doubt
Close the door, turn out the light
and fall crying on the couch

She’ll claim a new love
So the old one will go away
She’ll try hard, but that’s the rub
Undying love will always stay

like a neighbor who lets the fence rot
thinks a thin coat of paint is what it takes to stop
the hurt in her heart when she turned and walked away
will just come back stronger with each passing day
