                            When my life was mine.
                   My heart danced at a glimpse of you.
              I did what I could for our love to never fade.   
         When you asked me to do what I said I never would.
     You intoxicated my mind with sweet promises of tomorrow.
     You plucked my petal without a trace and tore it in my face.
             You left me with the bitter taste of yesterday.
             I carry remnants of our love everywhere I go.
                  Forever  struggling to make  ends  meet.
                     Today I am who I said I'd never be.
                     You have long melted into the past.
                    And as I walk our daughter to school
                      I can't help feeling like an outcast.
