Almost lover

I stood there walking down the same streets we used to walk together. I missed him and there was nothing I could do to get him back. After all he was no longer mine he was someone else's.

Your fingertips across my skin

The palm trees swaying in the wind, images

You sang me Spanish lullabies

The sweetest sadness in your eyes, clever trick

I could almost feel his hands in mine it reminded me of him. It reminded me of Germany. Once my best friend. Once my almost lover. I needed him but instead he left me for Japan. Why did it have to be me who was his little experiment? Why was I so naïve to his little tricks? Why did I get so attached to him?

I never want to see you unhappy

I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye my almost lover

Goodbye my hopeless dream

I'm trying not to think about you

Can't you just let me be?

I kept walking only this time there were small drops of water flowing down my face. I was unable to stop thinking of him. How we used to walk down the streets not thinking of where we were not thinking of the people around us, but instead just happy we where together. Or so I thought back then.

So long my luckless romance

My back is turned on you

Should have known you'd bring me heart ache

Almost lovers always do

I now had walked further than I ever had gone alone before. I ended up at a beach just like the ones we would visit. now without even realizing it I was almost at the end of the road. The road that was so rough to live on. The road that was my life. I now realized I could not let myself get so attached to someone so different from me.

We walked along a crowded street

You took my hand and danced with me in the shade

And when you left you kissed my lips

You told me you'd never let forget these images, no

I never want to see you unhappy

I thought you'd want the same for me

It was time for me to stand on my own two feet. I would no longer depend on the other countries for help. It was time for me to be a country of its own free will not being pushed around by the other countries.

Goodbye my almost lover

Goodbye hopeless dream

I'm trying not to think about you

Can't you just let me be?

So long my luckless romance

My back is turned on you

Should have known you'd bring me heart ache

Almost lovers always do

It was time for me to be more independent and forget about Germany. He would only bring me down. It was time for me to leave Germany's side. I stood up and there he was standing there I saw him saying something but could not hear it.

I cannot go to the ocean

I cannot drive the streets at night

I cannot wake up in the morning

Without you on my mind

"I'm so sorry Italy." The words finally made it to my ears. "No! It is not that easy I will not forgive you! You left me and now I am stronger! I will not go back to being your little Toy that you play with then leave for something better!" He looked taken aback.

So you are gone and I'm haunted

And I bet you are just fine

Did I make it that easy to walk

Right In and out of my life

"What are you talking about, Italy?" He asked as if nothing had even happened. "Don't you dare try to pull that on me I know that you left me! I know that you went to be with Japan!" He was once again surprised.

Goodbye my almost lover

Goodbye my hopeless dream

I'm trying not to think about you

Can't you just let me be?

"I'm sorry Germany but we are over forever. I never want to see you again." I said really quietly then ran away. I wondered if he even heard me. I guess t doesn't matter. I know what I said and I know that I would never see him again.

So long my luckless romance

My back is turned on you

Should have known you'd bring me heart ache

Almost lovers always do
