what goes on in my mind when i see you.
i hate it how my life stays in place and falls apart
and how all i ever wanted was to stay in your heart
we've let each other go as painful as it was
but you dont realize what seeing you does
it brings back memories of the good and the bad
each of these make me happy yet sad
what we had was real, or so we thought
until all the lies were seen and caught
all the plans we made, all the things we thought
when we realized it wouldn't happen, it broke our heart
remembering how i prayed for those chances stuck in my mind
now knowing that we could never together bind
we've both found someone new to please our hearts
yet when we see each other, memories of us tear it apart
we thought we could last forever, but we were wrong
we should have known we wouldn't make it, we weren't that strong.
