The moment we forgot we were just good friendsI moved my arm her face went red again
It's strange how easy it is to mistake friendship for love. A wall is created and only those who don't love are able to see through the malicious illusion. Guy and Girl had always been bound to the hip, ever since their mothers gave birth to them both. Girl had been born two months before him.As the audience presumed, the two soon fell in love, it was true love, a love that both knew would last forever and a day. But what happens when a love is taken too far? So far, you've created something that would bind both lives tighter than they already were.
One more bus home another silent weekendYou said love was painted gold
Within the next few weeks, the love was filled with nothing but tension of the angry kind and despite Guy's pleas for forgiveness, Girl turned the shoulderAfter two months gone by without a word from Girl, the two finally come together and accept their fate.A fateneither of them had asked for. It was found that two souls were better than one when faced with a change.
But like all things growing oldThe paint peels and slowly falls
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, including love. Well, maybe not the love these two beings shared for each other, because a first love never does quite go away but maybe love isn't always enough.Soon after the birth, Girl was gone. Without one single trace. Not one hint as to where she had gone. Guy was left with the new life both had created. In his arms, rested their little girl.
So you're gone and I'm hauntedAnd I bet you are just fine

Offering to take the baby in her own arms, he allows her to do just that after she's set the popcorn down.Friends. Nothing more.Present Girl only knows that Past Girl left him without warning. Ever since having found his secret due to having caught him at the park, she's offered her services all the while falling for him but not admitting it.Not to him and certainly not to herself.
