    I need to let you go
    I would if I could, there's something I don't see
    But its out of my control
    Yet I still don't know what you have on me
    Can it be that you're for me
    And dare I say I for thee

    I remember the first time that I saw you
    And I thought that you looked at me
    But what you'd do to me
    I could not see
    Now I'm sprung on you
    Don't know what to do
    I'm not that cool
    But I still wanna talk to you
    And I see now
    There's no point in doing this to me and you

    So I need to let you go
    I would if I could, if I could, then I would
    But its out of my control
    Whatever you have on me it must be good

    It seems that every time I see you
    I lose my mind
    Because it runs away
    With my imagination
    My thoughts of you
    I think they're foolish
    Because they can't be real
    Is it just infatuation
    But every time I try to do away with my feelings for you
    I realize they're too strong for me
    And more real than I ever knew

    I like this Virgil.. feeling you on this one.

    She still lingers. could it be because we never completed. I knew there was so much we both failed to share. Me for you , you for me. Take that in as part of the game.

    I recall a girl I was digging on in high school. She was it. I carried her books.. I was there for her. She liked the jock dude she was dating more. So they kept the thing going until I parted from them both. A few years later.. about five.. She showed up at my door. My apartment in college three hundred miles away from where we last saw each other and said.. I am here. I drove fifty miles from Kansas City to be at this location because I heard from all my sorority sisters that the guy living here gives the best parties on campus.. and that he was someone I should get to know. I took her number let her into the party. Called her the next day.. and said. Sorry I have someone. No time for me.. right now I have no time for you..

    ( relationships ) are funny sometimes. Like a box of chocolates..you never know what your going to get.

    Another lady I still care about still lingers.. I miss some and some miss me.
