Hello old friend
I welcome you into my head
You got lost in all the past
I'd rather welcome you, old friend

You and I are nothing more
We're a screwed up mess of people
But you're still in my head, old friend
Memories saved under our destroyed steeple

We built something up together many months ago
Though we tore it down day by day
When we left it's ruble, it wasn't all destroyed
There's still a chance to change, don't walk away

Can I even ask for a hello?
Even if you reject, you be cold
That steeple still remains
Patience I have won't grow old

Yet another perfectly amazing piece of literature. You conveyed such powerful emotions in such simple, short lines. I really like this one. :)
