The Good Ol' Days

October 6, 2009

I remember a day
When life was easier
I remember that day
Like it was yesterday

I can't get out of my head
The days I used to hate you
I still claim I do
But it's only to cover the truth

Some days
I don't like being strong
I want to cry
And show them I still can

Some days
I don't like being me
I want to be you
Just to know what it's like

How do you do it,
Stay so perfect
In such an imperfect place?

I want to hate you
Because I can't be you
Because I can't have you
But I just can't let the piece that I have
Slip away.

Oh, to have the good ol' days
Back within my grasp
When we could just be friends
And life moved so slow.
