Only Time Will Tell

August 23, 2011
Hiding behind a life
Just meant for me
Fit for no other man
I would not wish
It on anyone

A dark past
Bright future
Maybe not
Only time will tell

Loud depressing music
Reflecting my life
Running from what came before
From a love I will
Never forget

Now moving on
To one girl who
Might actually fit me
I hope and pray that she does
Only time can tell

A long way away from
The love that I still
Haven’t figured out if it
Was “puppy love” or
Infatuation or if
It was meant to be
Only time will tell

The clock moves on
No matter what I do
I can’t erase the past
I can’t
I won’t forget her
Time will erase those memories
Even if I don’t wanna let them go

Time is an enemy
And time is a friend
Still haven’t come to a conclusion
But time will tell
Only time will tell
