Was yesterday that long ago
I can't remember ever letting go

These pictures of us 
portray broken hope
Im stuck in the past with you
Scared of moving on 
and having to cope

You made it look easy
When you just walked away
Everything inside me 
begged you to stay

After you had left me to be alone
I would pretend to call you on the phone
The person I was hoping would answer
Is the one that I had never known
