Friends – Taking sides

I should have known that.
Should’ve known better
Than to leave her behind
Leaving her alone
To face.. My friends?
She was/is my friend too.
But she was silent.
She didn’t defend herself.
I guess she felt she didn’t need to
She felt right.
She shouldn’t need to
To justify something
She didn’t do.
Even if she did,
It’s not my business.
It was theirs.
They were both my friends.
Why did i need to take sides?

‘Set fire to the rain’

Four years ago,
I lost a friend to keep another.
I’m repairing the friendship
And i’m losing the other.
Why can’t I keep both?
I guess you can’t have fire
With the rain pouring down
This ain’t Adele’s song.
