Broken Bonds

By , Naperville, IL

Verse 1
Started off so close, where did it all go?
Holdin me in your arms, innocence looking back at you
Age took me by the collar and showed me what it meant.
It showed me what it meant to really live,
You were gone for six out of eighteen
Yet I still stayed strong, moved on to to be who I wanna be.
All you’ll ever see is the new me.
The one you’ll never be able to truly see

Chorus 1
Oooh, I'll bounce back true, yeah
Oooh, I'll bounce back true, yeah
The past don’t mean nothin
Future keeps me motivated
Man, I’ll bounce back true
But it won't be for you.

Verse 2
Put on that fake smile, don't bother lookin’ at me
I see in the mirror, a different boy
All I can do is hope the boy,
Once little and delicate,
Will never become a new version of the old you.
Trying every day not to become a replicate.

Chorus 2
Oooh, I'll bounce back true, yeah
Oooh, I'll bounce back true, yeah
The past don’t mean nothin
Future keeps me motivated
Man, I’ll bounce back true
But it won’t be for you.

Bridge
All it ever was or really is, means nothin’
Can’t remember the last time we met
We seem like strangers instead of family
Where did it all go, how’d it all disappear?
The laughs and the memories.
Yeah, the bonds have been broken.
Like the chains of our past holdin me down.

Chorus 3
Oooh, I'll bounce back true, yeah
Oooh, I'll bounce back true, yeah
The past don’t mean nothin
Future keeps me motivated
Man, I’ll bounce back true
But it’ll never be for you.
