The Jester’s Hat Is Mine

So many things
Flood back to my mind
Each time I think of you
A song on the radio you sang to
A favorite brand of liquor to drink
A stranger holding a cigarette like you did
The slightest whiff of your cologne drifting by
All these hundreds of flashbacks
Seriously hamper my ability to move on
To forget lost chances
To regret not following you
To imagine what it would take for you to come back
Foolish thoughts of a washed-up mind
You were never mine to have
And I was a fool to ever believe I could
