Old friends, Old lifes Same future

Old friends remind me of my old lifes 
Different times in the years past 
With different stories and different laughs
But with each chapter 
I leave them fighting in the past 
Thinking moving on is leaving everything behind
Realizing I can't bring them all with me 
So I bring none of them 
Reliving old dreams when our paths cross 
And wondering why I don't know you anymore 
You pretend like we are the same 
But I can't contact to a life I swore to never live again
And I'm not the same person that held you when you cried 
I'm not the girl that left you behind
I've changed to many times to count 
And one day you will know you can't count on me 
So I come to the place that holds most of my lives 
Walking around surrounded by ghost in this desolate town 
I smile and wave to my past and pretend I remember it 
But this isn't going to work 
This isn't what the world taught me 
So I run away Haunted by memories and broken dreams 
Friendships come and go. One thing stays the same 
Me running from the comfort of the past 
Yelling I can't live like this 
Six months is my limit 
Six months to pretend to be fixed 
But in the end it's me running away with a suit case 
For everything I wanted in those months was ruined so I start new 
Instead of trying to fix a broken heart with industrial super glue
I start over with something new
The only problem is the scares are still there 
The brakes haven’t heeled 
And because I have never learned the right lesson from my past 
I'm forced to relive it 
Until I find the answer I always am searching for 
Or it destroys me like countless times before
