On the off chance you’re listening,
There’s a few things you should know,
I admire the things you’ve done for me,
For those things have helped me grow.
On the off chance you’re on your way,
There’s a space made up just for you,
Fluffed pillows and your favorite soup,
Won’t you promise you’ll stay an hour or two?
On the off chance you stopped for gas,
There’s a time for you to think of what we could be.
A girl in a sundress, a boy in a beanie,
Just a wave along the shore, a never-ending sea.
On the off chance you turned around,
There’s a lonely girl just miles away,
With a heart full of love, eyes filled with fear,
Cold soup, a pillow and a place for you to stay.
On the off chance I’m over you,
There’s something you should know,
The tears were not worth the time you gave me,
I’ll never forget what we had, but it’s time to let you go.
