Forever is a long, long time

June 21, 2010
Close to two years ago
I was just sweet sixteen
and you were just the same

I was already in love with you
Don’t deny it to be true, you knew, you knew
And I believed you couldn’t care less about me, about us
But you changed my mind, you changed my mind, you changed my mind
with one single word, one lasting word
Forever

Don’t you know forever is a long, long time?
Don’t you know you can’t promise a girl forever without her never letting go?
Don’t you know forever is a long, long time?
Don’t you know you can’t promise a girl forever without her never letting go?

I remember how we were with such fondness
I remember you whispering you’d stare at my beautiful face as you make love to me
It was all so sincere
It was all so surreal
It was all so sweetly done
It was almost as if it was in my dreams

You promised me forever
and I promised you my heart
You promised you would take me
and I promised you could have me
You promised you’d never give up
and I promised I’d never give up
We promised, what did we promise? Only promises

Don’t you know forever is a long, long time?
Don’t you know you can’t promise a girl forever without her never letting go?
Don’t you know forever is a long, long time?
Don’t you know you can’t promise a girl forever without her never letting go?

Now you look back on that as a complex mess maybe you half regret
and I look back on that as a pathetic lovestruck teenager
And maybe you look back on it as you were scared
and I look back on it as fear is the heart of love

Now I see nothing in you
I see nothing in you
Two years went by and you see nothing in me

What happened to us?
from the past
I like that us from the past
I love that us from the past
I want that us to be us now instead of…

I can let go, I can give up
We can let go, We can give up
because
We never gave anything to each other
We never gave anything to each other
We never gave anything to each other
