Memories are sweet, they remind me
Of how things used to be.
But I don’t know why they make me cry
Maybe because you are not nearby…
I never asked for memories, I only asked for you
To stand by me, to see me through
But maybe I had asked for too much
Maybe there exists no ‘utopia’ as such
But I am not hanging on to the past
I have let it go so fast
Moved on, I really have
Trying to be strong, trying to be brave
I know I will make it through
But of this aching heart, what do I do?
I don’t blame you, I never have
I guess I was too naive to appreciate what I had
But the void inside me still cries out
But there is no one to even hear me shout
Tears are silent, they say
Yet the make the pain go away
But will I ever let the pain go?
Even when we were together,
There were tears and there was laughter
Told myself you were best for me
Don’t know why I felt lonely in your company
Maybe it’s good that everything’s over
But the memories, I know will last forever
You never even asked if we could be friends
That way maybe I could have made some amends?
I know not, why I still yearn for you
Even though the mask I wear cries out otherwise
From this pain, for me, there’s no reprise
I will always have you in my heart
And love you as much as I did in the start
Wish I could have you in my life too
But all I have are these memories to rue… ?
