I Heard You Quit The Team

I heard you quit the team

I didn’t think you would, and I didn’t think you could

but you gave up your childhood dream

 

I heard that it was a long time coming

people weren’t surprised, your priorities were compromised

but you didn’t end up with nothing

 

I heard you two started dating

Even though I ghosted town, word still got around

It became official when you stopped playing

 

So, you quit the team, you quit the dream

And instead chased something that won’t be everything it first seems

Through all of this, did you ever think of me?
