Who I Was

Just when life is at its best 
You will soon come to regret
And realize
That you’ll never be 
Worth loving
Deep down, you wonder why you fall
You wonder why, back then, you never saw it all
And now it’s all coming back
Who you used to be, 
Who you wanna be
Who I am, and who I was

You were so strange and silly back then
Comical was merely the lift of a pen
You laughed and smiled at everything
Nothing seemed to be damaging
Save your own small faults
In broken vaults

You sat there triumphantly
Singing a song you wrote
And now I sit here, regretfully
Wondering why
I can’t comply
With anything
