6th Grade


I went to bed the night before mad at you
I went to bed the night before without saying goodnight
I went to bed the night before frustrated with myself
I went to bed the night before saying I love you

I went to school without saying good morning
I went to school without saying a simple goodbye
I went to school without giving you a hug
I went to school without knowing

I went from class to class
I had the time of my life
I skipped, hopped, jumped
I was ignorant of all the signs

Meanwhile back at home, you were struggling
Meanwhile back at home, you were fighting
Meanwhile back at home, you were dying
Meanwhile back at school, I was laughing

6th grade is the year I thought you would stay
6th grade is the year that you left
6th grade is the year everything changed
But 6th grade is the year you found a better place
