Walk On By

There are just some people that no matter how much time goes by, you still get angry when you see them.  This is the case with my ex, who I saw for the first time in few months.  I think the sight of him angers me so much because of what has come out concerning our relationship over the past bit, or it’s the arrogance in his step, or the pretentious look he always has.  Either way, I always have to resist the urge to get up and punch him (I am not normally a violent person when angry), but I refuse to waste any more of my time on him.

I knew it was you a mile away
Didn’t actually need to confirm that
Of all the people to walk by
It had to be you after all this time

I can’t tell if you saw me or not
But I chose to look away
Didn’t want you to have a moment of my day
All I wanted to do, though, was stare you down

Walk on by, it won’t be fast enough
The clicking of those cowboy boots
Followed by the motor of your bike
I can still hear it now
Even though I just want it all gone
