    My ex boyfriend sent me the lyrics to Ballad in Plain D on my birthday yesterday at 2 in the morning. He left me for another girl and he wants to be friends. Long story.

    Would any of you do something like this to your ex and what does it mean? Some insight would be nice, thanks. Oh and he said that he wished he came up with this himself and that he could only change around a few lines...

    I once loved a girl, her skin it was bronze
    With the innocence of a lamb, she was gentle like a fawn
    I courted her proudly, but now she is gone
    Gone as the season she's taken.
    Through young summer's breeze, I stole her away
    From her mother and brother, though close did they stay
    Each one of them suffering from the failures of their day
    With strings of guilt they tried hard to guide us.

    Shyness embraced her, her love it was young
    With sensitive instincts, she was the creative one
    The constant scapegoat, she was easily undone
    By the jealousy of others around her.
    For her parasite mother, I had no respect
    Bound by her boredom, her pride to protect
    Countless visions of the other she'd reflect
    As a crutch for her scenes and her society.

    Myself, for what I did, I cannot be excused
    The changes I was going through can't even be used
    For the lies that I told her in hopes not to lose
    The could-be dream-lover of my lifetime.

    With unseen consciousness, I possessed in my grip
    A magnificent mantelpiece, though its heart being chipped
    Noticing not that I'd already slipped
    To a sin of love's false security.

    From silhouetted anger to manufactured peace
    Answers of emptiness, voice vacancies
    Till the tombstones of damage read me no question but, "Please
    What's wrong and what's exactly the matter ?"

    And so it did happen, like it could have been foreseen
    The timeless explosion of fantasy's dream
    At the peak of the night, the king and the queen
    Tumbled all down into pieces.

    "The tragic figure" her mother did shout
    "Leave her alone, God damn you, get out"
    And I in my armor, turning about
    And nailing her in the ruins of her pettiness.

    Beneath a bare light bulb the plaster did pound
    Her mother and I in a screaming battleground
    And she in between, the victim of sound
    Soon shattered as a child to the shadows.

    All is gone, all is gone, admit it, take flight
    I gagged in contradiction, tears blinding my sight
    My mind it was mangled, I ran into the night
    Leaving all of love's ashes behind me.

    The wind knocks my window, the room it is wet
    The words to say I'm sorry, I haven't found yet
    I think of her often and hope whoever she's met
    Will be fully aware of how precious she is.

    Depends how and why we broke up.
    If he cheated and I was really hurt by it then maybe but if it was a mutual break-up then no.

    Well, if his reasoning behind sending you the lyrics is genuine, then he probably misses you and wished things were different..

    On the other hand, because it was your birthday, he probably felt some guilt......

    Please, note that these are possibilities..and it could have just been a "moment" thing..... I don't have the details of your relationship with him, so I cannot say for sure.. however these are possibilities...

    How old is he?

    Btw, Happy belated birthday...

    My (was then) ex (now boyfriend) sent me a line to a song only me and him knew about when we were together, and yes, he was seeing someone else at the time.
    Stupidly I replied the next line to the song and he replied "thats the one " 'course I read too much into it and it got stupid.

    Now we're back together, I asked him why he sent me them it was because he was drunk/bored/lonely and had been arguing with the girl he was seeing.
