Sliced

I’m saying goodbye now
because I know you’ll reply now
but
next year when you’re famous
and
embarrassed by your old friends
you’ll ignore me and
pretend you don’t me,

I’ll remember that we were good together
whether you do is not up to me,
it’s the
money and fortune and
next year’ll be here soon
so
I’m saying my goodbye
right now.
