My suitcase is open, laying on the bed;
boxes of belongings stacked by the door.
Hangers of clothes are lopped over a chair;
unwanted pictures are strewn on the floor.

She's standing at the doorway watching me pack;
arms folded and leaning against the frame.
With red watery eyes and trembling lips,
she asked me to stop so she could explain.

I need a Sliver, just a sliver
of a reason I should stay
Sliver, give me a sliver
of a good answer today
I just need a sliver

Through the bus window, blurred buildings wiz past;
In my reflection I see sagging eyes.
My ear buds play music I can't really hear,
as I sift through the feelings dueling inside.

She had stood at the station watching me leave;
crying with prayer like hands to her mouth.
Had pleaded with me to please change my mind
But there was really nothing to think about

I just looked at her and said;
"I know you've been untrue"
She couldn't deny it
and she never tried to

Needed a sliver, just a sliver
of a reason I should stay
Sliver, yes a sliver
that she could give today

Just needed a sliver
