Say Hi for Me

Listen. I understand that all good things gotta come to an end. I just didn't expect ours so soon.
I know you weren't a big fan of the way I hung out with the guys--Michael in particular. But you know that his dreamy blues couldn't keep me away from you. Or the way that he could always make me laugh, or knows just the song to put on when I'm feelin' down.
Those things wouldn't keep me away from you.
Baby, I just want you to know that I wasn't distant when Michael was around because he was more interesting or jovial, intelligent or confident. You guys are best friends, and best friends can be so alike. Sure, he'd beat you at all the games and races, including picking me up after work when my car broke down. But who likes a guy who only cares about winning? I just wanted you to know that he had nothing to do with us.
Sometimes I wonder if you talk to him about the one that got away the way I do with my friends when I think back to our relationship. And at those moments I wonder if he knows I feel that way.
Oh, and can you tell Michael I said hello?
